Overall Experience
Being abroad is extraordinary and challenging. Being in Ghana was amazing. But we had so many problems with our program: corruption, absent academic director, extreme discomfort in homestays, racism, insensitive dialgoue about sexual assault, an extremely poorly designed academic program. However, it was so wonderful to go live ... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned how to exist in a group. I learned how to focus on the beauty of a country and all the new and wonderful experiences I was having rather than drama and misunderstandings. I learned t appreciate the bigger picture. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
There is not enough space here to tell all that I have gained. It was most definitely worthwhile, I don't want to imagine what my life would be like if I had not gone on this adventure. I've learned so much about cultural appreciation and acknowledgement; for myself, I've learned about patience and self control. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I could not even begin to sum up what I learned. I never believed that my mind could be challenged like it would be in Ghana. I was taught about myself through others. For me, it was a revolutionary experience that I want to keep all to myself because I cannot begin to explain it so other people could understand. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
this is a difficult question for me. Looking back, I'm very glad I went. I learned a lot about Ghanaian culture and made some strong connections. However, I think a lot of that was dependent on my group. I was able to have intellectual discussions with my peers, but we found ourselves very frustrated with the staff often. - None View Entire Review
I learned how to understand myself and others better. I had the best time in Ghana and it changed my life forever. I am more grateful for the friends and family I have around me. I have learned to appreciate the simple things in life. When I was in Ghana I wanted to talk to my family more and often wished I had appliances that m... - Brigham Young University View Entire Review

My study abroad experience was incredible, life changing and will stay with me forever. The experiences that I had, the things that I realized and what I learned are things that I will continue to pass on to those around me on a daily basis. Being an anthropology student, I was completely enthralled with the Ghanaian culture a... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

I learned so much about myself and became a person I am really proud to be. Ghana is such a special place, the people are kind, hospitable, and free. I love Ghana! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained a wide understanding of Ghana as a whole country and how to conduct fieldwork. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
At the lab, I learned basic clinical screening for common tropical diseases like malaria, typhoid, sickle and other diseases. I was also able to collect blood samples from patients, determine blood group and a lot more - Berea College View Entire Review
In Ghana I learned how to Azonto dance, ride in trotros, eat Joloff rice like a pro, coco farm, make pottery and beads, conceptualize colonialism, weave Kente cloth, lay down some sick beats on a talking drum, drink water out of plastic bags, reject marriage proposals, use any kind of toilet facility possible, converse with a ch... - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned how to live minimally and the real sense of community. Yes, it was worthwhile. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
I gained more than I can put into words! It was worth every penny I spent and it made me realize that I have nothing to complain about. - Brigham Young University View Entire Review
I have a better understanding of what my ancestor's went through in order for me to be where I am today in life because of my ancestors I am attending college and able to vote to name a few. This study abroad experience have impacted my life in so many ways like my eating habits have changed and "waste yeah not" have stuck in my... - Marygrove College View Entire Review
well my experience in Ghan impacted me in such a way that I have chosen international studies to get my second masters in. I went to Ghana misinformed and under certain misconceptions that I found to be just that, Misconceptions. I am glad that I went and I began missing it the moment I stepped into the airport to go back to Ame... - Central State University View Entire Review
