Overall Experience
I learned so much in terms of my Spanish skills and I got to travel which completely was worth it. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned that I can speak Spanish well enough to navigate in another country. I learned that confidence is key and you have to struggle to become better when speaking a new language. I learned that there truly are major differences in different cultures, but that they are essential to each culture and help make them what they a... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Past Review Cordo Bae
I learned so much about Spanish and European culture, and even a little about Moroccan culture. I also learned some things about myself and about Wellesley. I have seen a society that is able to function without constant stress, I knew it existed, and I hope to emulate it, but I know it will be even more difficult for my Wellesl... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with PRESHCO: Study Abroad in Córdoba, Spain
I gained the realization that one does not always need to be told what to do to make the most of their time. I did not implement this as much as I wanted to, but I feel that the lack of consistent academic rigor could have allowed me to explore the subject matter in a more customized way. I gained the ability to make non-america... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I've been anticipating going abroad for a long time, and so some elements of this program were disappointing. Ultimately, I really appreciate the experience, and I think it helped me to grow as a person and gain confidence. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I learned how to be independent and travel on my own. I also gained an understanding for the Spanish culture and was able to improve my Spanish. It was worthwhile. - Oberlin College View Entire Review
I gained a sense of independence and self reliance, different from the one I discovered at Wellesley. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I think I learned valuable lessons about advocating for myself and my needs. The opportunity to go abroad taught me excellent organizational skills. Going abroad was definitely a worthwhile experience. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My host family will be lifetime friends of mine, I made new Wellesley and Smith friends, my Spanish improved immensely, and I got to spend four months in one of the most beautiful and ancient European cities. The program and university did have its flaws, but not enough to make me regret this experience in any way. I learned to ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained a bigger perspective on life and the world I thought I knew. I had never traveled outside the U.S. previous to this, and it really opened my eyes to how large the world really is. A very worthwhile experience. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
