I have learned and gained so much from my time abroad. I have learned so much about myself as a person and about the world around me. I have also gained new friends. I have met people here that I will keep in touch with even if we do not go to the same school, or live in the same state. - The College of New Jersey View Entire Review

The ability to adapt to unexpected situations and make the best of them. It was definitely worthwhile - Universidad de Monterrey / UDEM View Entire Review
I was able to experience a different culture first hand. I was given the opportunity to meet with students from all over the world. Was it worthwhile?.. No controversy, hands down the best decision I have ever made. - Illinois College View Entire Review
My experience abroad has, by far, been the most significant learning experience of my life. I learned so much! Not just about Heidelberg or Germany or of the other cities and countries I visited during my time abroad but about myself as well. I learned new ways of communicating, new ways of adapting, new ways of experiencing lif... - University of the Incarnate Word View Entire Review

I learned more about myself and reading others. Yes it was worthwhile. - University of the Incarnate Word View Entire Review

Adapting to different circumstances - The College of New Jersey View Entire Review
So many personal gains come from studying abroad. I do recommend students get out of their comfort zones and see the world! I would be careful and conscious of what you want out of the experience when you choose the program and remember that they are selling the program to you so do some digging before committing. - The College of New Jersey View Entire Review
Confidence. Independence. Perspective. Don't think about studying abroad. Just do it. - The College of New Jersey View Entire Review
I got to experience so many new places and it was so exciting to travel around Europe. - The College of New Jersey View Entire Review
I had first-hand experience of what it's like to live in Europe in the 21st century. From the old traditions and values to the new ways of incorporating globalization and technology. I was very pleased with coming here. I would never have this kind of experience anywhere else. Germany is truly unique. - University of the Incarnate Word View Entire Review
I learned how connected we all are on this planet. There are huge barriers such as language, food and customs but there is more that brings us together than tears us apart. If you even have a yearning to travel do it, it is scary at first but you will leave Germany a changed person. - University of the Incarnate Word View Entire Review
