Studying Abroad allowed me to understand just how large the world is. I come from a small town in Vermont, so it was great for me to gain insight and knowledge about other cultures around the world.

I needed this in my life. I was getting bored being in the same place and all of this excitement was perfect. Ireland is an amazing country and looks exactly like all of the pictures you see. The people there will become your family. I talk to all of them everyday and write them loads. I urge anyone who even thinks that studying... - University of Maine - Augusta View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CISabroad (Center for International Studies): Limerick - Semester in Limerick
I came back a completely different person. I have found out who I really am. I now have friends all over my country, and many others. I need them in my life, and they have helped me become who I am now. When I went to London, I got into a dance company and double majored in Dance and Psychology. These decisions are crucial to m... - University of Maine - Augusta View Entire Review
I was able to travel while in Ireland and each time I learned of the culture. I believe the best thing I gained from studying abroad was the ability to reach beyond my own comfort zone and try new things. I was able to play soccer for the team over here after never playing in my life before. I was also able to meet the most amaz... - Springfield College View Entire Review
