Overall Experience
It was definitely worthwhile. I was able to gain new ideas about the world from talking to people who grew up in another country. - Berea College View Entire Review
Overall, I do not regret attending this program. It was not the extremely exciting and life-changing experience that some students report from study abroad experiences. It felt like a realistic experience. Ups and downs during and reflecting. - Berea College View Entire Review

I learned that there are so many different people and cultures in the world, and that traveling is something that I would like to pursue in the future. It was definitely a worthwhile experience. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned how to be very independent and I learned a lot about Irish culture. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained and learned a lot. I grew as a person in terms of my interests-I hiked and learned how to climb-as well as gained close friendships. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned more about myself and how the world is viewed differently from other countries perspectives. I gained more knowledge about how the European countries work. This was a great experience and I met wonderful people. - Berea College View Entire Review
This experience taught me a lot about myself as a person and how to be more independent and confident on my own. Traveling around Europe enabled me to see and meet so many people who were different from my small town in Kentucky. I have made friends who will last a lifetime and I truly believe I am a better person after studying... - Berea College View Entire Review
I absolutely loved study abroad. It gave me some independence and agency. It was definitely worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review
Of course my time abroad was worthwhile. I connected with another culture and made what I know will be lifelong friends. I am also going to try to go to graduate school abroad because of this experience. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself, and I learned more about Irish culture and other foreign cultures than I ever anticipated. It was definitely worthwhile, I would consider it the best money and time I have ever spent. - SUNY - Albany View Entire Review
My study abroad experience allowed me to learn how to be on my own in a new environment. I was able to take responsibility in myself that I was never really able to before. Not only that, but I was able to experience a new culture while I was at it and see a different way of living. It was amazing. - Berea College View Entire Review
I discovered what it was like to have relationship with a city. Galway is big enough to be interesting and alive and small enough to be friendly and intimate. I learned so much about myself, my ability to take care of myself with very little support. I learned about a culture and place that I thought I already knew something abo... - Berea College View Entire Review

Past Review Truly Magical
I learned so much about living on my own and providing for myself. I also learned so much about my own history and the history of a country that isn't often talked about. It was incredibly worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I learned the processes and the intermediate level skills of archaeological excavation. I learned the varied methods used by archaeologists to excavate different types of site and provide experience in a number of necessary skills, including intermediate levels of recovery and recording, feature excavation, and basic excavation ... - Eastern Illinois University View Entire Review
I learned more about myself this semester than in the summation of my entire college experience. Studying abroad challenges you to be independent, confident, and hard-working, while at the same time providing you with opportunities to explore the world. I would go back to Galway anyday! The experience was absolutely worth all of... - Berea College View Entire Review

I had the greatest experience being exposed to Irish culture, food, music and atmosphere. Life in Ireland is so similar yet so different from life in the US. I loved Galway so much and cannot wait to go back one day! - Lehigh University View Entire Review
