Overall Experience
I learned a lot about French and really enjoyed taking Masters level classes - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned more about myself than I did academically. I learned a lot of personal and life skills that definitely made the experience worth it overall, but there were times when I definitely struggled. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Yes! I got a broader understanding of different cultures. I was very socially satisfied because I was able to travel all over europe, experience different cultures and meet interesting people. I definitely came home with a greater respect not only for other cultures, but my own culture as well. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
