Yes! - Connecticut College View Entire Review
I loved studying abroad. My only regret is I didn't do it sooner, and I didn't do it for a longer period of time. I'm graduated from college now, and might not get the chance to experience something like that ever again. It was beautiful, incredible, and soo much fun. I feel a lot more aware of my cultural surroundings than I di... - Oklahoma City University View Entire Review

I gained a lot of knowledge in Spanish and just adjusting and living amongst other cultures - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
If I could do the experience all over again I would and I wouldn't change a thing, okay maybe the excursion to Sierre Norte, but that's it.

it was very worthwhile, i got to see old friends and meet new ones. going back has made me realize even more that we dont need the things that we use every day as an american, and that there are many people in the world that live humbly and without the things we take or granted. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review
Study abroad gave me a clearer picture of who I am and what I want out of life then the four years I spent at university. I am now more driven to meet my personal goals. I now know what those goals are. I feel that study abroad has given me the tools and independence to really expand my universe. - New Mexico State University View Entire Review
