A student studying abroad with CISabroad (Center for International Studies): London - Semester at the University of Westminster
I learned a lot about myself, and how amazing the world is out there. How different cultures are. There's a huge world out there and I've only experienced a little. It was very worthwhile - Eastern Connecticut State University View Entire Review
I learned the cliche of really finding myself while being abroad. I came back a completely different person and am much more calm and have a clearer picture of where and what I want my life to look like after graduation. Going abroad is a great way to clear your head because everything is new and exciting and you get to experien... - University of Delaware View Entire Review
Very worthwile! If I had to do it over again, I don't think I would change anything. It definetely increased my cultural awareness because I met people from all over the place. - Salem State College View Entire Review

And especially the university i went to Westminster is the greatest university as far as international presence, i met people from argentina, spain, brazil, japan, finland, bulgaria. I think it definately helped me understand though how not alone i am in this wor... - University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CISabroad (Center for International Studies): London - Semester at the University of Westminster
I learned the most amazing thing about myself is that I love getting lost. I love the feeling of getting lost in a new city, wandering around for hours until I know the streets like the back of my hand and found all of the hidden gems you never see in city tour book. - Columbia College Chicago View Entire Review
My time abroad was honestly the best 6 months of my life (thus far). I was able to learn how to be independent and to adapt to different situations. Being in London gave me so many opportunities that any other location would not have been able to provide. I learned so much about myself and a lot about others as well. My time in ... - Wagner College View Entire Review

I learned that it's not always about what you learn in the classroom, it's how you apply your knowledge to real life situations. It's about adaptation and accommodation. Most importantly, it's about connecting to a place that is different than your own - experiencing it in all ways that you can - and then coming back and sharing... - Berea College View Entire Review
September 17, 2014 A Semester Abroad
I learned about different cultures, different countries in general, the different schooling, and in general just the different types of people and the way they live their lives. - University of Alabama - Tuscaloosa View Entire Review
I learned so much about the world and cultural differences. I am so much more accepting of other people now and understanding of others. I absolutely loved travelling Europe and getting to see all of the famous sights I have only ever seen in text books. It made me a more independent, mature person who is ready to graduate nex... - University of Maine at Orono View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I understand so many more walks of life now and see how big the world really is. I already wanted to travel the world but this just confirmed my dreams and taught me that it's worth it. I'm going to travel as much as possible now and experience as much as possible. - Marshall University View Entire Review
