  • Professors
* What could be improved?
  • Variety of students
  • No diversity
  • Too many students from the same state.
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? Any and everybody should be studying abroad. It is an experience of a lifetime that will change you for the best. You learn to live on your own without any help of your parents, no matter where they are. I highly recommend this it will change your life!
