Essentially, I got a fairer education outside the classroom than I did inside it. The format of General Course (finals = 100% of final grade) was an extremely difficult pill to swallow -- and one I'm still not satisfied with -- but the overall experience was worth it because now I have friends from three different continents tha...

EXPERIENCE, EXPLORE Tian L - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I made amazing friends and had experiences I would never have living in a small college in Wellesley, MA.

I was always happy and motivated because London is an amazing city with amazing people. gupta.nayni - Wellesley College View Entire Review

London is a very international metropolitan. At first I was a little disappointed with this feature because I was expecting to meet more British friends. But later I began to take advantage of the unique environment and learned a lot of interesting things from people all over the world. A student - Trinity University View Entire Review
