We, as foreigners, don't know anything about a certain country, its history, social issues, language, etc until you experience and learn from it from its people. - Marist 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

My Spanish - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I was able to greatly improve my Spanish proficiency. I learned about a different culture and way of living outside of the US. I learned to live on my own and take risks. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I became fluent in Spanish; learned an incredible amount about Argentina's social, political and economic history; integrated myself into Argentinian culture; saw and experienced things I never would have dreamed of; and made the most incredible memories that I still think about every single day. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned so much about Argentine history, US foreign policy vis-à-vis Latin America, Argentine culture, how to adapt to a new country, how to navigate a new city etc. It was definitely worthwhile, I would recommend this program to anyone who is independent and wants to learn a lot. - Columbia University View Entire Review

human rights, yes - Trinity University View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile! I learned so much about the culture and South America in general, both inside and outside of the classroom. Also, it may sound corny but I also grew as a person and learned a lot about myself. - Washington University in Saint Louis View Entire Review
March 08, 2014 You'll Learn A Ton
I learned a lot about myself, how to get by in a totally new city and what we take for granted as normal in the state. - Colgate University View Entire Review
I learned so much more of the language and the culture. I was able to see outside of the developed city of Buenos Aires and how others live, such as those in los campos. I also was able to learn about their government and the extreme sides of the political spectrum and beliefs down there. - Providence College View Entire Review
Yes, the program was definitely worthwhile. I learned that studying abroad can open up a wide variety of opportunities to learn others' culture and learn more about one's self. As the individualism slowly fades the cares of others' begins to take presidence in your life. - Spelman College View Entire Review

December 01, 2015 Amazing Abroad Program!
I loved this program! I learned a lot about the culture and society of Argentina but I also learned a lot about myself such as how I learn, what I want do with my future, etc. I studied abroad in Spain and by far had a more powerful experience on this program in Argentina. - Gettysburg College View Entire Review

YES. I would consider this one of the most rewarding experiences i've had/will have in my lifetime--this program changed my life forever (in a great way).

What I really love about this progra... - Smith College View Entire Review
I learned so much while abroad! It was 1000% worthwhile. I loved that the program had a specific, interesting and relevant field that all our courses and activities pertained to, and I learned so much from these components of the program. I also learned a great deal about myself and really matured and grew individually just fr... - Colby College View Entire Review
Language. Maturity. Friends. Cultural exchange - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot. In terms of academics, I learned a lot about Argentine history and improved my spanish greatly (although not from class so much as from interacting with local people). I feel as though I became a lot more independent and brave in terms of pushing myself and not being afraid to take risks and learn from my mist... - Davidson College View Entire Review
