A student studying abroad with CIEE: St. Petersburg - Russian Area Studies
I improved my language skills, learned a lot of vital information that will help me with my major and future career goals, and I was able to learn the other point of view in U.S.-Russia relations. It was definitely worthwhile. - Western Washington University View Entire Review

Past Review
It was extremely worthwhile and other than my housing, I was very satisfied with my experience abroad. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I got better at dealing/being with people. I felt at peace with myself knowing that I put myself out there - Trinity University View Entire Review
Completely worth while. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I met life long friends, and other people who changed my life and my self. I learned to let go and deal with what I can't change, while taking control of what I could. I found self confidence I have lacked my entire life. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
Past Review Good
Language - University of the Pacific View Entire Review

Past Review Awesome!!!
I learned to much to say- it was the best decision Ive made so far in college - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
I would not mind living and working in St. Petersburg for a short time. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Definitely. Left knowing NOTHING about Russia, still came back with more questions than answers, but with a slight insight into the mystery. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review

I am very glad I studied abroad. I was able to make friends with Russians, and understand what challenges I am ready to face ( and which ones I am not). I think studying in Russia helped me learn a lot about myself. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Past Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I learned so much about Russia, made some wonderful friends, and even want to go back! It really lends some perspective to your university studies, which can be a bit of a bubble. - Tufts University View Entire Review
