Overall Experience
I gained a better sense of independence and I learned to take care of myself and say yes to more opportunities. This experience was absolutely worthwhile, and I am still in shock that I was able to go to Ireland and live there for four months. Like, what? It was the best time of my life. - SUNY - College at New Paltz View Entire Review
It was completely worthwhile. I learned so, so much from studying abroad---both inside and outside the classroom. I learned so much about Irish culture: from customs to food to the landscape to history to literature. I learned too much to possibly enumerate. - National University of Ireland, Galway View Entire Review
I learned how to travel on my own. It was worthwhile because now I have confidence in my traveling abilities. - National University of Ireland, Galway View Entire Review
A chance to compare my life to the lives of international college students. I also learned about my heritage, and gained a better understanding of my Irish family. It was so worthwhile. - Washington State University View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CEA: Galway, Ireland
I learned about Irish history, culture, and landscape. I would not have been able to achieve the depth of my understanding without being there, seeing the historic and modern places, talking to other travelers, and talking with locals. My study abroad experience in Galway, Ireland was beyond worthwhile. It was life changing! Not... - Colorado State University View Entire Review
Yes. I wish I could re-live this past year every year. View Entire Review
