ABSOLUTELY. - Ithaca College View Entire Review

Definitely worthwhile, I'd do it again in a heartbeat. - Austin College View Entire Review
Minus a few hiccups, I do not regret going to Madrid. It gave me different perspective on Spain, and I was able to realized that I enjoy Catalan culture a lot more, and Catalan people. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
My experience was definitely worthwhile. I don't know that I would ever live abroad, but I better appreciate the differences and similarities that the United States has with Europe. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Yes. I've always wanted to stay for an extended period of time in a foreign country so it was perfect for that. It has given me a perspective outside the U.S. that everyone should have. It hasn't changed my future plans. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review

- University of Saint Thomas View Entire Review
Yes, I would say it was. I learned a lot about Spain and America's relationship as well as their place in the world, as well as a great understanding of Spanish culture. I also became a lot more aware of the way that different people live and think, as well as the way they see Americans. - DePauw University View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile, however I didn't like that it was to americanized. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I really enjoyed my experience. I learned a great deal about other cultures and people and that the world is a lot bigger than I previously thought but that people are not so different despite cultural and geographically difference. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review
My study abroad experience was absolutely worthwhile. When I think back on the experiences I had in four short months it's pretty astounding. Yes, I learned valuable language skills, but I learned valuable life skills as well (for instance, how to navigate public transportation in any major city in any language), and I learned a... - Rice University View Entire Review
Study abroad was an unbelievable opportunity that broadened my horizons to a world beyond the US. I was given the opportunity to see how students behave in a different country and how norms vary across the world. I traveled Europe and learned so much inside and outside of the classroom. - Tufts University View Entire Review
