I learned a lot about taking care of myself and being 'on my own' (without family + old friends). It was definitely worthwhile. Homesickness sucks but it teaches you how to deal with it since you don't have a choice. I loved experiencing the culture first hand, and living in a place so different from my area at home. - Indiana University of Pennsylvania / IUP View Entire Review

May 10, 2016 What A Dream
What a loaded question, to asked what I gained and learned... I learned how to meet new people with no assumptions about who they are, offering them a blank slate on which our friendship can begin. I now have renewed confidence in my ability to learn languages and speak with random people. It makes me wonder why I don't talk to ... - Point Loma Nazarene University View Entire Review
I have gained a greater appreciation for other cultures and feel like I have grown personally from this trip - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
July 18, 2018 Unforgettable
An understanding of another culture, and an appreciation for the overall Sorrento city - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I learned that I am independent and that it is so empowering to be able to get around on my own and figure things out. I have minimal overseas travel experience without my family, but I think it is an incredible experience to be independent and immerse yourself in another country and culture. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I gained a feel for Southern Italian culture. It was definitely worthwhile. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I learned about a more laid-back way of life and how Southern Italy contrasts to where I live. - Western New England University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about how Italian daily and business life differs from American. I also got to see many historical, architectural, and natural (rocks/sea) sites. - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review
I learned that you are very vulnerable in this situation. Something that goes wrong can seem a lot more upsetting than it should be. Also, don't have such high expectations that when you arrive you are disappointed. I wasn't disappointed with the town or the school, just with some locals (especially men) and the students. - Indiana University of Pennsylvania / IUP View Entire Review
It was amazing! I learned all new things about cultures - Western New England University View Entire Review
Self-confidence, how to program and look up material for the Italian education system. I have refined some research skills and programming skills. Most of all, I learned how to function independently, see the world and teach its people. - University of Akron View Entire Review
100% worthwhile! - Johnson & Wales University View Entire Review
June 23, 2016 Awesome!!
I learned how to be completely independent and to be culturally aware - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
May 10, 2016 Fun
Learned a lot about other cultures. - Plymouth State University View Entire Review
