Overall Experience
I learned so much including language, cultural adaptation, how to keep a budget, etc. It was definitely worthwhile. - California Baptist University View Entire Review
I am so much more independent now, I learned how to plan trips, book flights, adapt in new countries, speak a different language, and so much more. It was all worthwhile and it was hands down the best decision I have ever made! - Stockton University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and the world around me during my experience abroad. I would definitely recommend study abroad to any student looking to explore the world and get outside of his/her comfort zone. - University of California - Berkeley View Entire Review
My time abroad taught me so much about other cultures and opened my world to new people, places, and experiences. I feel that I am much more open-minded to trying new things. I now have a bunch of international friends and have learned a lot about other cultures. My study abroad experience was very worthwhile because I feel much... - Champlain College View Entire Review
I got to experience many different places I would never get the chance to visit unless I studied aborad - University of Mississippi View Entire Review
That the world is bigger than just me and by travel to different places you get such a broader world view becoming more open. - Washington State University View Entire Review
I learned so much about Spanish culture and how America is so different, which seems obvious, but when you learn why we're the way we are and they're the way they are it is so much more worthwhile. I learned a ton about myself like what kind of traveler I am, how to cope with unexpected situations and how to adapt to completely ... - University of Michigan - Ann Arbor View Entire Review
Through CEA, I got to meet other students that I never would've met otherwise, as we all went to different schools throughout the United States. I met and bonded instantly with these incredible people, and I have CEA to thank for that. There is so much to do in Barcelona and I swear I probably averaged 4 hours of sleep a night ... - California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo View Entire Review
Yes - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
Studying abroad was the most amazing experience of my life. While the program was not my favorite, Barcelona is an amazing city with so much to offer. I have no regrets about studying abroad. I learned how to become more independent, learned a lot about other cultures and how to adapt, and learned a lot about myself and others a... - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
I learned how to be more independent and about all the other cultures I visited. It was the most worthwhile experience of my life. - High Point University View Entire Review
In one month abroad, I learned more about myself than in the last two years of my life. There is no other experience that lets you leave every disposition that you have ever associated and labeled yourself with than studying abroad and reintroducing yourself with strangers that have no sort of preconceived notion of you. From ... - University of Arizona View Entire Review
SO worthwhile. Learned to adapt to the culture around you. Embrace new traditions and new food. Learn problem solving skills when technology isn't available (can't just rely on cell phone data). - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
Past Review It Was Dope
learned a bunch of stuff - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
I loved talking with the CEA staff and hearing what their lives are like growing up and living in Barcelona. I have grown as a person and will remember my time abroad forever. - Iowa State University View Entire Review
I learned about about myself and another culture. It was worthwhile. - Cardinal Stritch University View Entire Review
As a result of my program, I am now more confident speaking a foreign language. I gained a new perspective on my home culture from a global context as well as got to know the Spanish culture. - California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo View Entire Review
Cultural integration. Adaptability. Problem Solving. Experience traveling. Dealing with different personalities and customs. Very worth while. You learn more than you realize. - Washington State University View Entire Review
I gained a ton from my experience abroad, mostly how to interact with people and situations that are different than usual or outside your comfort zone. - Washington State University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about Spanish politics and cultural norms that I didn't think i would have learned otherwise. I learned how to communicate better with others and gained a lot of confidence and adaptability skills. - Washington State University View Entire Review
Going abroad allows you to get out of your comfort zone while experiencing something new every day. No two days are the same and that's what makes everything so worthwhile. - University of South Carolina - Columbia View Entire Review
I grew as a person and I grew as a friend to others. - California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo View Entire Review
SO worth it, so many different people - University of Miami View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CEA: Barcelona, Spain
I learned so much while i was over there. I learned how to live in another country for one, but also the customs and culture of the locals. It was so much fun getting to know them (the locals)! I would definitely do this program all over again. The city and the staff of the program were just amazing and they were the one who ma... - New Mexico State University View Entire Review
