A student studying abroad with SIT Study Abroad: Argentina - Social Movements and Human Rights
My experience abroad gave a view into a different style of living as my host mom lives a minimalist, no-waste lifestyle. I also got to attend a lot of deeply stimulating conferences and talks that gave me a lot of academic contacts and information. - Smith College View Entire Review

February 23, 2018 An Unforgettable Semester
I learned a lot about how organizing is so ingrained in Argentina, and how that translates to a very different political culture than we have the in the United States. With that being said, it made me consider more deeply what it means to be from the United States, and the conceptions I have of certain things that culturally spe... - Davidson College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with SIT Study Abroad: Argentina - Social Movements and Human Rights
I gained a new perspective on the world and learned a lot about the politics and culture of Argentina, in addition to what we learned in classes. I really enjoyed the experiential nature of the program in that a lot of learning took place on visits, trips, etc. outside of the classroom. It was definitely worthwhile and I will ne... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

It was worthwhile. I gained a broader understanding of the largeness of the world, experiencing along the way a new culture and some of the nicest people I've met.

Became fluent. Made lifelong friends. Grew close to my host family. YES - Washington University in St. Louis View Entire Review
YES SO WORTHWHILE. Gained friends, stories, the ability to really just go for it and do so much out of my comfort zone, how to deal with myself, how to deal with awkward situations. I learned equally about me as an individual as I learned in terms of academic content and language development. Such a rewarding experience, I think... - Trinity University View Entire Review
