Overall Experience
I gained a lot of self confidence, independence and travel skills. I learned to do things I wanted to do by myself and became much more confident in my own abilities. It was absolutely worthwhile. I think study abroad is one of the only ways to gain such high levels of self-sufficiency and independence at a young(ish) age. I als... - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review
The experience taught me so much about having an open mind and being comfortable with being uncomfortable! - Elizabethtown College View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself, including how to adapt to new situations and solve problems. I gained language skills. I debunked my own myths about Italian culture. It was the most worthwhile experience I've ever had. - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
I become very aware and proud of my country of origin. I learned that even those countries that appear as the ideal place have negative aspects as well. I learned to be calm, rather than stressed. Italy will slow you down. Accept it and love it - University of Texas - San Antonio View Entire Review
I would not change my experience for anything. I could not imagine studying anywhere else. It helped me become more open minded and much more aware of important things going on in the world. I made life long friends who I still talk to on a weekly basis and see every few months. It made me want to take a few months of after grad... - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
Cento percento! My abroad experience was one of the best things that ever happened to me, and if I could I'd be there doing it all over again right now. View Entire Review
I gained a new language, real friendships, and an international mindset that will carry over into my future career. - Elizabethtown College View Entire Review
I learned how to be more independent and feel more comfortable with myself. Definitely a worthwhile experience! - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
I feel that I learned how to be more independent and learn to go with the flow from my study abroad experience. You can't always have control over entire situations, especially while traveling. Studying abroad taught me how to deal with issues that may arise and how to be more easy going. - University of South Carolina - Columbia View Entire Review
Studying abroad was the best choice I could have ever made. I used to be extremely shy, afraid to sit in a classroom by myself. But I studied abroad in a foreign country, not knowing anyone or the language. I am now not afraid to try new things, and I want to travel the world. I am a Journalism major, and I used to want to w... - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
Very, the people I met made it very worthwhile. View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CISabroad (Center for International Studies): Perugia - Semester in Perugia
Absolutely! It has changed me in so many ways, but everything has changed for the better. I went abroad being a little awkward and socially very shy, but I have come back a new outgoing person who isn't afraid anymore. I'm so confident in myself that I just feel like a whole new person. I went abroad for the first time in my lif... - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
