Overall Experience
I loved it. South Africa is awesome. I really want to go back. Going to Cape Town allowed me to explore Africa, which is probably the continent I will least likely get to travel to in the future (because everywhere else is easier and much more accessible to me). So I am glad I can check a region of the world of my list of places... - Clark University View Entire Review
Yes, absolutely! I learned so much about South Africa and other walks of life, and I also learned so much about myself and matured so much. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned to adapt to my environment and not seem an ignorant American. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Studying abroad was probably the best experience of my entire life. I met some of the most interesting people I have ever met, and saw things and places that I will never see anywhere else in the world. Cape Town is the most beautiful city I have ever been to. I hope to go back as soon as possible. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I was in many ways incredibly independent there, more-so even than at Tulane, and I feel that I learned to rely on myself a lot more. I also greatly enjoyed seeing such a vibrant city, where cultures from such diverse areas of the world have meshe... View Entire Review
it was absolutely worthwhile. gained a better understanding of the world for the average citizen of the world, not the average citizen of the west. i got a chance to see how millions live without true and simple luxuries of life that we as westerners take for granted and consider essential. - Tulane University View Entire Review

Yes yes yes. This is an experience I wouldn't trade for anything. It has been eye-opening, as well as ENDLESS fun. 6 months here and still not a dull moment. - Clark University View Entire Review
