Overall Experience
I am more certain in my beliefs, my passions, and the direction I want to take my life. I have a better understanding of sustainability and community and what it means to be a citizen in this global web. It was more than worth it. - Hope College View Entire Review
January 17, 2016 Unforgettable Iceland
I gained an appreciation for all of nature. Absolutely. - University of Oklahoma View Entire Review
It was not worthwhile. At least not for the high cost. I did learn some basics about sustainability and got some nice perspectives, but I could have learned the same amount of material in a week-long university course. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review

Past Review Phenomenal!

I have been empowered to change individually and push others to change as well-sustainability efforts. I learned how to be a traveler rather than a ... - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
Any study abroad experience is worthwhile. It is invaluable and I am still in process of what I gain from it. I know though that with my three semesters abroad I have changed for the better. - Pacific Lutheran University View Entire Review
