Overall Experience
Absolutely. It was worth every cent. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
My experience abroad could have been nothing more than amazing. It gave me a different outlook on life and broadened my horizons. I now look forward to sharing my experience with other people and recommend each and every person to travel and discover the world. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
It was worth every second of lost sleep and spent penny! I will for sure be going back. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
It just made me see how many things we have that we truly don't need. I don't turn my lights on as much and I conserve more energy because of it, I try to be outside more than anything else because with technology it's harder and in Europe technology hasn't taken them over yet. And I just learned to not take all these things we ... - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Yes it was. Although I wished that I did not live with a family. I did completely enjoy my time there. It was unforgettable. - Illinois State University View Entire Review

It made me much more aware of my surroundings and opened my eyes to life outside of America. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was definitely worthwhile. I got to see many cities in Europe and experience tons of new foods, sights, and experiences. I gained a lot of independence and learned a lot about myself and how strong a person I am. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to go abroad and learn invaluable lessons about m...

Yes I couldn´t have loved it more I gave up a lot to come here but it was really worth everything and I am dreading going home - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Definitely! I have encouraged my entire family to do it when they are in college. One thing i can say is that although I believed to have great knowledge about different cultures, one can never stop learning. I was able to visit other countries and learn of their culture too! You are not limited to the country you visit. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I gained a new respect for other cultures. I loved everything about the experience and it was more than worthwhile. I loved every minute of it. This trip gave me more motivation to become a Spanish teacher. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I have so much more confidence in myself. I understand that people live their lives so differently than we do in America, but we have so many common goals and interests in the end. I was so eye-opening and rewarding. View Entire Review

yes - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE! I COULD DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN! - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Past Review Granada, Spain
I learned so much Spanish while I was in Granada. There are so many things to learn just from being around natives; you learn a lot in classes and at school, but you learn so much more just sitting around talking to native Spaniards. I loved Spanish before I studied abroad, and I still love it now. Luckily I never got sick of... - Illinois State University View Entire Review
YES, there were some downs but it was all worth it! Best experience of my life and i already miss it so much - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I learned more of myself having to deal with people or making plans to travel. Grew up a little bit more. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Extremely. I can't wait to go back abroad later in my life. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I learned a new language and more of what the world has to offer along with other cultures. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Studying abroad made me much more confident in traveling and speaking a foreign language. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I will forever be a traveler and I've gained nothing but confidence and drive to continue my journey - Illinois State University View Entire Review
