It was worthwhile. I’ve learned that it is hard getting out of your comfortable bubble but once you do, you learn something new about yourself. - Becker College View Entire Review
I wish I would have remembered that I was in a tropical paradise, and to not stress out too much about schooling. It still was very worthwhile. - Western Carolina University View Entire Review
I learned more about myself. I learned more about what I wanted to do with my future and found a love for traveling. I have become more independent and satisfied about where I am in life. Studying abroad is 100% worthwhile and everything I thought it would be and more! - Becker College View Entire Review
It was very cool to experience another culture and get a feel for the different functionalities and perspectives of the locals on the world and their own lives. - Berea College View Entire Review
