I think it was worthwhile but I wish I would have participated in more program trips and dinners with local students. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile! - Sarah Lawrence College View Entire Review

Past Review I Love Paris!
100% worthwhile. I learned how to be on my own, adjust to an environment without the safety of a college campus. I met wonderful Americans and French people and I fell in love with a city! It was wonderful! - Reed College View Entire Review
Past Review Slc In Paris
I greatly improved my French speaking and writing skills, and I learned about cinema both through making a film and taking courses on Film theory. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Worthwhile, but there's a lot I would have done differently. Paris is definitely the best place to study in France, but I would have done it with a program other than Sarah Lawrence. Their courses and academic rigor were nothing compared to Wellesley's. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I have been studying French for many years, so I was expecting to have a better grasp on French than I actually did. I learned the value of perfecting an accent. In addition, one of my goals was to see a lot of art. The way my classes were structured, especially with the half -hour tutorats, and having to use the library’s duri... - Scripps College View Entire Review
It was more than worthwhile. Like every study abroad student, I would like to say life-changing, and stick with it no matter how cheesy it sounds. The French academic system, at least as regards their approach to art history, really helped me to ground my academic work and not stray so much into theory. My life outside of school... - Sarah Lawrence College View Entire Review
I learned how to truly live independently and speak another language. It was very worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned to be present where I am and to take hold of different experiences. It was definitely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Paris is a great city to study abroad in! My language skills have definitely improved and I've learned a lot about the French culture and history. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Yes, it was very worthwhile. Wonderful learning environment, I am now very confident in my abilities with the French language, I gained exposure to the French dance/arts scene and a sensation that I am an international dancer, I grew in adaptability, self-confidence, resourcefulness, and creativity. I made good friends, and I le... - Scripps College View Entire Review
Past Review Indescribable
I feel like a different person after going abroad: while the academics are important, the social and personal benefits are enormous. You learn so much about yourself and the world around you. I continually think back to my year in Paris and can't wait to return. - Sarah Lawrence College View Entire Review
I gained amazing friends, incredible memories, my French improved SO much, I got to know a new city, I traveled all over Europe, I had awesome professors, and it was 100% worth while!!! - Brandeis University View Entire Review

I gained a stronger comprehension for the French language and an appreciation for French culture. It was a once in a lifetime experience that I am glad I had. - Columbia University View Entire Review
I gained an appreciation for my life at SLC in New York after seeing how awful it could have been. I do not feel that the program was worthwhile for me. - Sarah Lawrence College View Entire Review
I learned an infinite amount of new things while abroad, many things that I probably don't even notice on a day-to-day basis. I learned to be patient with myself and others and I finally got a chance to understand being a REAL outsider. I also gained a lot of self-confidence in standing up to people, as regular confrontation is ... - Sarah Lawrence College View Entire Review
I gained a certain confidence from living abroad and I feel like my French improved by leaps and bounds. I think it was important for me to live outside of my comfort zone for a semester. It was definitely worthwhile for me and I have an deep fondness for Paris. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. It's too much to sum up in a few words, but it's so important to just go an live some place different. - Sarah Lawrence College View Entire Review
I am glad I went abroad. However, it was not as much fun as I thought it would be. I learned a lot, though, about both the world and myself. - Tufts University View Entire Review
