Middlebury Schools Abroad: Middlebury – CMRS Oxford Humanities Program

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Studying at CMRS was the most challenging academic experience I've experienced, but the MOST rewarding thing I've ever done as well. Every ounce of effort you put in, you get back and your eyes are opened to the greatest institution in the world and you leave feeling as if you've learned more in one semester than you've learned in your entire educational experience.
