While looking into study abroad programs, I knew I wanted a program that would give me the support I needed to fulfill my dream of studying in London. CISAbroad was so supportive of me every step of the way throughout the study abroad process. Before, during, and after my time abroad, CIS made sure I had the resources I needed to be successful. The on-site staff in London were phenomenal and were always willing to help my peers and I when needed. CISAbroad's planned excursions added so much depth to my experience, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I loved getting to meet other students from around the United States. I see myself staying in touch with some of these new friends for a lifetime, as we shared in such an unforgettable experience together. I would study abroad again with CIS in a heartbeat!
