Past Review

By (Management, SUNY - Binghamton) for

SUNY Binghamton: New Delhi - Technology, Economy, and Society in India

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I learned about new cultures. I have never traveled to a country with such a high poverty rate and people who live so differently based on religions that aren't as prevalent in the United States.

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

Not including program expenses, about how much money did you spend on food and other expenses each week? Very little. The exchange rate is incredible in India. You feel like you're playing with Monopoly money.
