January 25, 2017 Best Experience Ever!!
I was able to travel all over Europe and meet a lot of wonderful people while I was in Bremen. It was definitely worthwhile!! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained a LOT from going abroad and emphatically recommend it to anyone thinking about it. I learned about who I was outside of being an academic, which was really important new information that I wouldn't have received at my home university. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

June 01, 2015 Unbelievable
I learned about foreign languages/cultures/customs, as well as learned a lot about myself. It was certainly worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how much I value the close relationships that are in my life. I learned that I don't want to take the people who matter to me for granted. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I definitely learn the importance of languages as I traveled around Europe and while living on an international campus. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Stress
My experience was like an enigma that I still haven't reexamined because of how much it affected me, not in ways necessarily positive. In some ways it was worthwhile, and in others it definitely was not. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Being In Bremen
I learned a lot about German Politics and Culture from the study abroad course. It was a very worthwhile experience, and to do that class again I would go back. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about other cultures and how things are different around the world. I also got to travel Europe and conduct my own neuroscience research. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It's studying abroad in more than just Germany - an international university is like seeing the world without having to spend the money to travel the world - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned to have an appreciation for people that I never thought I would talk to. The Jacobs community consists of so many different people; I appreciated not only getting have meaningful conversations with the local students, but also other exchange students. Having various conversations with people of differing view points du... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
January 05, 2017 Wellesley At Jacobs
I saw how other countries function differently from the US, and how social norms differ by country. I got to travel to many countries and meet people from all over the world. From being away for a semester, I also came to appreciate Wellesley and the people at Wellesley more. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
America's has a heavy influence in the international sphere, but its economy is not the most flourishing, and in my opinion can learn from the welfare state models of Europe English is really the international language Europe has a very rich culture - a lot of ingrained traditions Germany is leading the effort in sustainabi... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I thought the experience was very worthwhile. I hadn't realized how accustomed I was to the way things were in America and while Germany isn't that much different, it was amazing to see a different country and try to understand the culture. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned very little academically, but I gained a global perspective and many friends. Ultimately it was worth it entirely. - Washington State University View Entire Review

I definitely gained a greater independence. I now feel completely comfortable traveling on my own and trusting my instincts when it comes to foreign places. I have had to navigate certain situations that I feel have equipped me for the real world in many ways. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
This experience was incredibly worthwhile! I learned about other cultures, my own culture, and German culture. Not all learning has to take place in an academic space, and my experience at Jacobs reaffirmed this. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was definitely a worthwhile experience. I made a lot of friends, gained a lot of educational experience from working in a research lab and taking graduate level courses, and also was exposed to a lot of culture and diversity without traveling far from the university. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was so incredibly worthwhile. I learned a lot of advanced organic chemistry and organometallic synthesis and gained a lot from research experience. I met people from all over the world and saw a lot of Europe, taking advantage of my convenient location. Music, art, ultimate frisbee, clubs, beer, good food, good people, lan... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
This was the most worthwhile experience of my life. I learned a lot about myself by being in a place where I knew not one person going in and after 4 months came out with what I hope will be a group of lifelong friends. The best thing about Jacobs is the international community on campus. You learn so much from being in this com... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
