Overall Experience
Spanish - Xavier University of Louisiana View Entire Review
I learned how valuable the spanish language is across the globe. It was very rewarding to be able to communicate with strangers in a very foreign place. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing
I learned everything. It was more than worth it. - Providence College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. Especially living with a host family was so beneficial and amazing. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile. I would do it again and again. I can't really say in this tiny space what I learned just that the whole thing was incredible and amazing. Do it. Alicante is beautiful and amazing. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review Life At Alicante
absolutely - Bryant University View Entire Review
Yes, I learned a lot of Spanish and traveling, made new friends that I would not have met at Villanova and discovered things about my self. - Villanova University View Entire Review
Going abroad has made me very independent, and more worldly. I got to see and do so many things I thought I would never see or do. I learned that open mindedness will get you very far, and in another country the best thing to do is whatever the natives do. Unlike most people, I had interest in teaching abroad when I graduated co... - Providence College View Entire Review
The experience was completely worth my time. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile. I learned more about myself, about the world around me, and how even though perspectives don't always match up, it's the overlap that makes the experiences worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself, my culture as well as other cultures. I became more independent and made incredible friendships. I learned so much both in and out of the classroom. Yes, it was worthwhile. - Providence College View Entire Review
i learned a lot about myself and also a lot about the culture of spain. it was definitely worthwhile - Fordham University View Entire Review
I had never been out of the US, so it was eye-opening and educational. I could only take Spanish classes because of the program, and so not having all of the rigorous business classes made me very relaxed. I really appreciated a semester of "Spanish time". - Trinity University View Entire Review
SO WORTHWHILE. I gained a different and better perspective on life and the cultural immersion was an incredible experience. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Absolutely. It changed me and my outlook on life and the world. I benefited so much from my experience and I miss it a lot. I want to go back to Alicante and Spain and work there because I loved it so much. - Trinity University View Entire Review
IT HAS AFFECTED ME IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS. I AM NOW CONSIDERING TO GO BACK AFTER I GRADUATE - Hope College View Entire Review
I am definitely more culturally aware than I was before. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review
My study abroad experience was well worth it! I loved every minute of it. Although at times, I was challenged academically or learning new customs, I wouldn't change it for a second. I learned so much about the idea of home isn't where you live but it's rather the people and attitude you have. Your host family and friends abr... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
