Overall Experience
September 15, 2019 Apricots.
I've learned from traveling abroad of the immense potential of growth that exposure to foreign environments offers on every level of one’s personality. My time traveling domestically and abroad has helped shape me into the sort of determined, inquisitive, and empathetic person that I have become. Rarely, with such experiences, a... - Berea College View Entire Review

I learned how small humanity is in the grand scheme of things. We are so small in the world, yet we think that we are the biggest thing out there and our problems need to be the biggest thing. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned how the other parts of the world communicate and how they take care of the Earth. It was definitely worthwhile; it's made me want to travel and see everything. I gained a interest in environmental health and I realized how important it is to recycle and reduce our water usage. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned to expect/embrace the unexpected. No matter how well you have something planned out in your head; things don't always go according to plan, but that's okay. Sometimes you'll have the most fun when you deviate from the plan. - Berea College View Entire Review

I gained a further knowledge of the German language, as well as Europe itself. Every program has been worthwhile. - Murray State University View Entire Review
I bettered my German 5 fold and I learned a lot more about other cultures and myself honestly. Yes, it was worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review
I only wish I could have gone to an actual Austrian university so that i could have met Austrian professors in my field. I learn a lot about the Swabian dialect of German and the culture in Swabish Austria. I gave me new insight into the different cultures within German-speaking countries and gave me ideas for future research ... - Middle Tennessee State University View Entire Review
Words cannot fully describe how much this program has changed my life. It was the best decision I ever made. - Morehead State University View Entire Review

It was great! I learned a lot about the culture and picked up on a lot of the language. My experience was both educational and life altering. My plans remain the same and my interests as well. - Morehead State University View Entire Review
September 10, 2019 Life Changing Experience
I feel so much more confident in myself and my abilities now that I have been abroad. I didn't have anyone I was close to when I went, so i had to do a lot of things without the support of close friends or family. I wouldn't change that for anything. - Berea College View Entire Review

Yes it was worthwhile and I learned that you learn more than you ever could if you get stranded in a place and have to figure your way out - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the places I went to, but I also learned a lot about who I am as a person. I would say that makes it worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review
I gained the experience of what it is like to travel to a place where I do not know that language. My experience was worthwhile. Though it was frustrating at times, it was also fun. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself and my surroundings. Completely worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review

I learned a great deal of German, which was my main reason for going on the trip. I also gained a ton of memories with a bunch of wonderful people, that I hopefully will never forget. It was very worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review
It was the first time that I had ever been out of the country and it was nice to experience another culture and see the the similarities and differences. - Ball State University View Entire Review
Past Review
It was worthwhile in every possible way. I'm a firm believer in not being able to put a price on this type of experience. It is something you have to realize first hand. You have to immerse yourself in a culture in a way that is completely different than a week-long vacation. - Morehead State University View Entire Review

About

Bregenz is a medium-size city of approximately 30,000 inhabitants rich in natural and cultural beauty. A city of regional importance dating back to the Romans, Bregenz lies just a few miles from the German and Swiss borders and has the advantage of being both on Lake Constance and at the foot of the Alps.

Group and class excursions-- including possible visits to museums, castles, factories, businesses, schools, and medieval towns-- compliment classes in Business, German, Literature, and Humanities. Living with Austrian families in the charming city of Bregenz also offers students a comfortable home during their study abroad journey.
