Overall Experience
Lifelong friends, acculturation. Very worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself, and I guess that's part of the point in going abroad, to learn about yourself and becoming a better person. I got to learn about living in a space a bit out of my comfort zone, and how to enjoy traveling, with people and by myself. It was all completely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

The biggest things I learned were to be more independent (taking care of money, food, etc.) and to adapt to the new system of education. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Studying abroad was the best college experience I had and I wish every student is able to go. Especially if you can go for an academic year, it is so worth it to fully immerse yourself because one semester will go by so quickly! I travelled to 20 countries in Europe and made some lifelong friends. I took some great classes and e... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

I learned a lot about the ability to go on adventures by myself because I was in control of what I wanted to gain from my experience abroad.
