Study Abroad Programs in Morocco

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?

The group of travlers, very memorable for me- we became like family! The camel ride to our tent - suprise but pleasently so, the food was wonderful, the cultural was different than expected. I was expecting a very Muslim country - it was an open religion country but mostly Muslim. It was a wonderful expereince - one that I know traveling through Marygrove made happen for me- I will travel again with them any time!

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

Safety is using my common street smarts. I never felt threatened at all but we never went anywhere alone and we made sure none of our "family" did either!

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? No


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)
