I learned and gained an understanding of Southeast Asian Culture and really learned to understand and appreciate the importance of keeping an open mind when traveling. Jeremy Breakstone - Johnson & Wales University View Entire Review
yes it was worthwhile because it was so unique. However, I spent most of my time in the dorm arguing with my bank in the US. Even the best laid plans end in wreckage due to forces we can't control. A student - Cottey College View Entire Review

I learned that life is short, and time fly's by faster than the blink of an eye. There is so much more to see in the world than just the traditional places. This trip was more than worthwhile, I would not trade my experience for anything. Everyday, I miss it. Monique - West Texas A&M University View Entire Review
There is too much to describe and words will surely fail me here. Studying abroad teaches you so much. You learn in the classroom. I suppose that's the first thing. My courses were easier than the ones here at Berea College but that does not mean they were easy. I got something out of them and for that I am thankful. However, I ...

On Semester in Thailand, you’ll live in Bangkok, the heart of Indochina and the capital of Thailand, and will study at Mahidol University, Thailand’s top-ranked university. You will have limitless opportunities to immerse yourself in the local culture, make international friends, and explore beaches, jungles, and iconic sites throughout the country. The white-sand beaches in Thailand are so fine, the sand squeaks under your feet; once you’ve visited Thailand’s coast, you’ll understand why the Leonardo DiCaprio film The Beach was shot there. Thailand is known as the “Land of Smiles” for a reason: the Thai people are warm, welcoming, and incredibly open-minded. In Thailand, a smile is the most appropriate reaction to almost every situation. Geographically, Bangkok is one of the largest cities in the world. The city is famous for its delicious cuisine, inexpensive shopping, and colorful nightlife. A semester in Bangkok will leave you yearning for more time in Thailand. The many student interest groups on campus offer numerous social and cultural activities, and dances, concerts, plays, and movies take place frequently throughout the semester. Art, cultural, political, religious, and athletics clubs are a great way to make friends from all over the world, and will allow you to have a wonderful study abroad experience!
