Overall Experience
It was incredibly worthwhile and I wouldn't change anything about it even if I could. I loved the country and especially the people. It was such a unique experience that I feel incredibly lucky to have had. View Entire Review
Past Review
I missed graduation, while abroad, and still I know it was the right decision. I felt bold in deciding to go abroad at the point in my academic career and I feel that my time abroad forced me to grow up and expand my horizons in ways that would not have been possible at Wellesley. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review
YES! I have grown so much from spending time in another country. I learned more about how I interact with people and how to adapt those interactions to a different culture. It was amazing :) I'm definitely going back!!! - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review
I loved my time in New Zealand and am so happy that I decided to go there. I experienced a different approach to education and gained a better understanding of geology, different cultures, and life skills. It enforced my love of traveling. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
This was definitely a worthwhile experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat! I'm planning on going back to work in NZ for a few months after graduating. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Past Review
I gained alot of experience, and wisdom about what to do and what not to do. I also learned that relationships are better than experiences. Still, getting to know the people there and explore as I did was certainly worth it. I highly value independence and exploration, and I was able to (almost) satiate those there. - Rice University View Entire Review
