Study Away and Internship Programs in Boston

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Wow, what an experience did I have in Boston this summer. I wasn't ready for a working environment when i started but left with so much more confidence. Working and school are two completely different realms and I so happy happy I choose to work. The connections I made at Ringley are sure to be beneficial going forward as I search for a full time job.
