Overall Experience
I gained a better appreciation for my life, I learned about myself, and am overall a better person - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I can not even put into words how much I learned abroad. It is a key growing experience and I hope everyone can experience it. Barcelona is a city like non other. I grew as an adult because I had a lot more freedom and i also grew culturally from traveling to over 10 different countries. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I have absolutely no regrets from choosing to study abroad. I traveled a ton, saw places all over Europe, became more multi-cultured and knowledgeable, etc etc...all that stuff. The regret I do have is choosing to go with CEA, and this mostly had to do with the people in the program. The VAST majority fit into this mold: Greek... - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CEA Global Education: Barcelona, Spain
There are SO many valuable moments and memories that will stay with me and while there wasn't necessarily one moment that stood above the others, any one of them still would have made the trip worthwhile.
