Studying abroad gave me a new perspective on school and culture. I realized that I took a lot of things for granted at my home institution and did not appreciate themas much as I should.

Coming into an apartment with 5 other guys and not knowing any o... - Vanguard University of Southern California View Entire Review

My semester abroad has changed me forever in the best way possible. I am so grateful for the experiences CEA provided me and I think I have grown as an individual through my encounters and my new friends. - Providence College View Entire Review
By studying in another country, you can grow so much as a person. I have learned how to be more responsible, how to manage my time correctly, how to stay on a budget, how to plan a trip right, and how to be more organized with so many things on my plate at once. - University of Texas - San Antonio View Entire Review
May 13, 2018 Cea Rome
There's so much to learn about yourself as well as the world when studying abroad. You learn how to challenge yourself in many ways and grow as a person. Living in another country allows you to learn about another culture and traveling broadens your worldview. Studying abroad is absolutely worth it! - Cedar Crest College View Entire Review

I gained a new sense of independence and opened my eyes to new experiences and perspectives - Richard Stockton College of New Jersey View Entire Review
I gained so many wonderful experiences. I am much more independent then I was before I got here. This way beyond worthwhile I do this again and again and I will recommend people to study abroad it is an amazing experience. - Carroll University View Entire Review
I learned that I can go into a completely new environment, knowing no one, and have the best time of my life. I met wonderful people, and made friends at the local places I went.
