My study abroad experience was definitely worthwhile! I learned how to act in situations with a language and culture barrier. I was also able to visit many major cities all around western Europe.

Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The classes I took were not ones I would have choosen at Centre and don't apply to my major. However, it was a great opportunity to take a broad range of courses and get a true liberal arts feel.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Sometimes the program administrator wouldn't be in her office and it was difficult to contact her.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Bouxwiller: 6 person apartment. <br /><br />

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Weekend travel was absolutely amazing!

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Italy and England were the most expensive countries I visited. Travelling is expensive, but that is to be expected.

Language acquisition improvement?

Professor Hullar was a wonderful French teacher!
