Overall Experience
I grew so much as a person and learned a lot about myself and the world around me. It was not always easy (the culture shock was intense) but I wouldn't take back the experience for anything. If you really want to challenge yourself and mature, this is the program to do. Travel as much as possible, too! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Well, this is broad. I learned a lot about myself, socially. I'm more sure of the types of people I do and do not want to associate with.

I learned that living in a different country and speaking a different language nearly 100% of the time is absolutely possible and attainable! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Pontifical Catholic University of Peru: Lima - DIrect Enrollment & Exchange
It was very much worthwhile. I gained greatly improved spanish skills, incredible travel experiences, good friends, a great relationship with a host family, deep cross cultural experiences, and new understanding. Also gained more simplistic perspective of what one needs in life. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
I learned a lot about developing economies, and future opportunities in Peru. - Pepperdine University View Entire Review
