Overall Experience
Nothing beats going to a foreign country and living in a completely new place. There are not many of study abroad experiences in the Middle East, so it is pretty cool to have a program available. G.K. Chesterton said the point of an open mind is so it can close on something concrete. I'm not sure that we did that. - Hope College View Entire Review
July 20, 2016 Amazing Oman!
I have learned about other people in other parts of the world. This helps me understand the perspective that some people come from and how I can better understand them. This was TOTALLY worthwhile!! - Northwestern College View Entire Review
Too much to say, but yes it was worthwhile. - Northwestern College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I learned about myself, others, and the world in ways I never could have hoped for. - Northwestern College View Entire Review
I learned about a very misunderstood culture and religion. I continue to be fascinated and in love with the Middle East and I hope to go back one day. It was more than worthwhile, it was an experience I will forever carry with me as a pivoting point in my life. - Northwestern College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Northwestern College: Muscat - Spring Semester in Oman
My goal in studying abroad was to live in a cultural context different than my own in order to broaden my perspective, challenge myself to be more independent, and have adventures--big and small. I achieved these things. - Northwestern College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Northwestern College: Muscat - Spring Semester in Oman
Most of what I learned from my abroad experience was about myself, other than the academic knowledge I gained. It was worthwhile, but I don't know if I would do it again (based mostly on how hard I was hit by culture shock for a month in the middle of my semester). - Northwestern College View Entire Review
Past Review Earth Shattering
I grew deeper in my faith, while learning about others beliefs. I learned how to become an independent and stronger person because of the smaller size of the program. It provided me with a place to grow and really blossom into who I am today. - Central College View Entire Review
