A student studying abroad with IAU College Study Abroad: The French Honors Program, Aix-en-Provence, France
I gained a confidence in handling transitions to new or nerve-racking situations and an ability to communicate well with people who are of a different cultural or viewpoint than me. It was very worthwhile. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
