The reason I travel is to learn about new cultures, and to broaden my horizons and get out of my comfort zone, and to grow as an individual, I definitely accomplished that goal. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was the most amazing thing I did in my college career! I would never trade this experience! I am more willing to be on my own and travel without feeling needy or lost. I enjoy adventure and cannot wait to graduate to explore some more! - University of Maryland - Baltimore County View Entire Review
I have family in Central America, but I had never been to South America before studying abroad in Argentina. I fell in love with the people, the culture, and the opportunities to explore. While in Argentina, I traveled throughout not only Buenos Aires, Mendoza, and Salta, but even Chile, Peru, and Uruguay. The people I met an... - University of California - Irvine View Entire Review

Worthwhile is a bit of an understatement here. My study abroad experience exceeded my expectations tenfold and it was by FAR the coolest experience of my life. I wish I could do it all over again! I have so many memorable experiences, and I've made really great friends in Argentina and all over the United States! - The College of New Jersey View Entire Review
Living in Buenos Aires was my third experience living abroad for a long period of time. So, I am very adaptable and enjoy meeting challenges in new living situations. So, in that aspect I loved living in Buenos Aires, I met wonderful people and traveled all over the country. That said, the ISA program is a total joke, the suppor... - Northern Michigan University View Entire Review

Best investment I could have ever made for my future. - San Diego State University View Entire Review
My spanish improved immensely and I met some awesome people. I got to try some new foods and experience a whole different culture.

Past Review Good Airs
Yes. - Austin College View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile! I plan on studying abroad again! My teacher could not have said it better, "we are all the same, just different." You gain a new perspective on life and you come to find out that you really do only have one life and you better make it count. So experience all life has to offer and accept every culture eve... - Washington State University - Pullman campus View Entire Review

Best decision I ever made. I absolutely loved my time in Argentina. It was really the trip of a lifetime. I made amazing friends, really immersed myself in the culture, and learned more about life than I ever thought I would. I fell in love with Buenos Aires and I cannot wait to go back. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself that has positively impacted my life. Being in unfamiliar situations really shows a lot about yourself and how you handle situations. It was really worthwhile to have the experience of being a foreigner living in a country and learning all that comes with that. I have always wanted to teach English a... - Arizona State University View Entire Review
I've never had more fun in my life than my semester at the Universidad de Belgrano. Interesting academics, great people in the study abroad program (people who choose to study abroad and choose to do it in the same place share an incredible bond), great cultural opportunities, and a great support staff made the experience fantas... - University of Michigan - Ann Arbor View Entire Review
I did this program because I just wanted to improve my language level. I did it in preparation for another program. What I didn't anticipate was that I would really like everything about Buenos Aires. In 4 weeks I got a new "I can do anything" attitude. Just navigating the city and challenging myself to try to learn this languag... - Loyola University New Orleans View Entire Review
The majority of problems I had were self-created. There are plenty of resources for everybody to have a great time, from traveling to playing a sport at the university. I learned what's it like to not feel like an American (although this term is offensive since South Americans are also Americans) and to live in a world where you... - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
All cultural experiences are worthwhile. A little spending for an unprepared professor though. - Luther College View Entire Review
It was expensive, but definitely worth it. You only live once, so don't hold anything back. - Arizona State University View Entire Review
Studying abroad absolutely changed my life. Studying in a different country really opened my eyes to the cultural differences and American biases that have been instilled in me for so many years. I learned so much about myself and the way I interact with other people, especially in new and challenging social environments. Academ... - University of Pittsburgh - Bradford View Entire Review
Absolutely, I made great friends, had priceless memories and experiences that none of my friends at home have experienced. - University of Pittsburgh - Bradford View Entire Review
Studying in Argentina has confirmed that I have a passion for foreign culture. I've started my TESOL certification and absolutely plan to continue traveling/working/living abroad in both Argentina and other countries in the future. - Arizona State University View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. It was a wonderful, challenging, complicated, fascinating experience. I learned a lot -- about Argentina, Latin America, the world, and myself -- not all of it even yet known to me. - Hamline University View Entire Review

I've decided to change my major (Chemistry -> Cognitive Sciences) because I decided I do actually like people. I really want to continue traveling. I learned how to be independent and more emotionally stable. - Rice University View Entire Review

About

Buenos Aires (pop. 13 million including suburbs) is well-known for its cultural diversity and lively atmosphere, making it one of South America's most exciting and vibrant cities. The city's history revolves around Western European immigrants whose influences can be seen all throughout the city in its architecture, art and style. Although Buenos Aires is historically unique, it has also adopted some more modern architectural styles, which provide a notable contrast to the city's deep-rooted traditions and history.

Buenos Aires holds countless opportunities for students to experience Argentine culture. Students can attend soccer games, world-class theatrical and dance performances, and participate in a vibrant nightlife. Many students will find themselves intrigued by the unique Argentine accent and the national dance, the Tango. Students are sure to witness tango performances throughout the city's streets, cafes, and theaters.

Students in Buenos Aires will benefit from the support of the ISA on-site office. Resident staff members will assist students with travel information, volunteer and internship opportunities, and tutoring.
