What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
This was the greatest experience I have had in college! The staff was amazing, the professional visits are enlightening, and you truly gain International IQ. I learned so much, while also being able to experience everything about each city. The program is flexible in helping you achieve whatever you seek and I would recommend this to all my friends. Hugo is an inspiring program director who really helped me become a better person! Everyone feels like family by the end of the trip. The connections and memories I made are going to stay with me for a lifetime. Please experience this program, you won't regret it!
