January 23, 2016 Una Verdadera Aventura
Besides gaining amazing friends, I also learned how to travel independently. Prior to this, I had always traveled with my family or friends but during my stay, I was able to explore on my own. I traveled to Chile and Argentina all by myself and met people with incredible stories from all over the world! I also learned how to man... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
March 18, 2014 Just Say Yes
Don't hang out with Chileans simply because they are Chilean. Seek them out because they are people your age with similar interests. That is what builds strong friendships. I had a "just say yes" policy and always accepted invitations to hang out. Never a let down. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Pontifical Catholic University of Chile: Santiago - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
The biggest thing that I picked up from my study abroad experience was the enormous contrast in culture that Latin America has in comparison to the United States. In Chile, as well as other countries we were able to visit in South America we were able to speak with locals and learned the value of family and the importance th... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

It was absolutely worthwhile. I learned SO much about Chilean culture, latin american geography, I climbed volcanoes and glaciers, learned a lot about the Chilean wine industry, improved my spanish, and experienced earthquakes! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I gained independence and some really incredible friends. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Chile: Bacan!
It was absolutely worthwhile - I will be working in the Latin American division of a company in Denver, Colorado starting this fall. I plan to incorporate my interests in Latin American, Spanish, and travel into my career. In reference to my response to "if you could do it all over again, would you choose the same program?", I w... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Past Review ¿Cachai Chile?
General global outlook improved as did understanding of cultural interactions and "why things are the way they are." It just opens the world. Meeting people, even while travelling, is incredibly enriching and provides lots of good conversation and future travelling possibilities. Basically it all just confirmed my love for La... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
YES!! Best advice I received before going abroad was: just say yes. I learned to say yes, and become more independent (including a two month solo backpacking trip across Argentina!) and more adventurous. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I gained lifelong friends and will actually be returning to live long-term in Chile after graduation. I learned so much about the Chilean culture and came to love the Chilean people. I learned how to interact cross-culturally daily, and learn and grow from that experience. It was completely worthwhile and I would highly recommen... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Chile Is Great!
Definitely worthwhile! Improved my Spanish, met great people, and got to know Chile! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I cannot describe everything that I learned while abroad in such a small box - but it was the most worthwhile experience of my life. I improved my language skills, learned a lot about the local and Latina culture, and saw areas where I need to improve myself - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It was completely worthwhile- I had a wonderful time and it has definitely changed my life- it's great here. If people want something not quite Europe or the North America, but not like much of Latin America, then it's the place to go. A unique country and quite interesting. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned to accept different cultures through a neutral filter and first try to understand and ask questions before judging. Try new things and push yourself beyond your limits. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Absolutely. I loved studying abroad in Chile and can't wait to go back. - Boston College View Entire Review
It made me aware that I was looking for something in Chile that had very little to do with its reality, more to do with my stereotype of an unknown country. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
