It was so worthwhile to study abroad!! It challenged me so much and I grew so much as a person. I learned so much about Spain and the world. It's hard to explain how much living in another place changes you for the better. :) A student - Presbyterian College View Entire Review

This study abroad program was such a huge impact in my life and one that I would not change for anything. It definitely taught me to open up the world, mainly in different people, beliefs, cultures, customs etc. When you are able to travel and live in a foreign country like that, the things you pick up and learn are truly invalu...

I learned to apprecaite other cultures, values and customs. I have changed my outlook and have realized that there is much more to the world than what we are taught in America.

I learned not to be afraid to ask for help, I learned that (most of the time) people are actually really nice and willing to help you, I learned that I am much more capable of dealing with problems that I thought. I learned that I don't really like Spanish food. It was 100% worth while. Helen D - Presbyterian College View Entire Review

My language skills have improves immensely. This experience allowed me to learn so many things about other cultures as well as my own.

From language development to cultural understanding, from weekend travels to intellectual growth, this experience was worthwhile. Devin B - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
My experience was absolutely worthwhile. I would go again in a minute if allowed the opportunity. History classes in the US don't always cover Spain/Spanish history/Spanish culture very well (apart from financing Columbus and conquering much of Latin America) or talk much, if at all, about Portugal) or how northern Africa infl...
