Overall Experience
It was definitely worthwhile - I gained Spanish language skills, learned about the history and culture of Spain, was pushed to reflect and think about issues I may not encounter in my life at school in the U.S., and I gained experience with independent traveling. - Barnard College View Entire Review

It was the best decision I have made in my life. I don't know why everyone doesn't go abroad. I feel like I have learned so much about myself and grown as a person because of this experience and it amazes me how much I have changed as a result. It really was the experience of a lifetime. - Providence College View Entire Review
I enhanced my Spanish proficiency through the intensive course work I undertook over the past 4 months. Living in Spain gave me a deeper perspective of the world at large, while learning about the active Spanish culture I lived in. It was most certainly worthwhile. I regret almost nothing about the experience because it was an i... - Fordham University View Entire Review

YES! - Claremont McKenna College View Entire Review
My study abroad experience helped me grow as a person and helped me to really excel in Spanish. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I would have put a 4.5 only because I wish I had done more while I was there. Being abroad with this program impacted me a lot by making my Spanish exponentially better. Also, I loved it so much I am returning to Seville for the upcoming year! - Northwestern University View Entire Review
I'd probably give my study abroad experience between a 3 and 4. At times, I loved it and had amazing memories of Sevilla and the various places I visited and people I met, but I also had a challenging time as well, adjusting to my life in Spain, the people on my program, etc. If I could do it over again, I would do even more to ...

Absolutely - I gained fluency in Spanish, a wonderful new set of friends, and had the experience to travel all around Spain and Europe. I gained so much independence, confidence, and world knowledge. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I improved my language skills and had an opportunity to learn how to live in a different culture on my own. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I learned much cultural and language knowledge, as well as much in my classes, but what I gained was indescribable. I can't imagine not having gone on this experience, and truly feel like I picked eh perfect program and the perfect city for me. This experience has taught me much about myself, and I have become more of myself by ... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

The best four months I will ever have and I could not have possible asked for a better program/experience! It was literally unreal. NO8DO - Tufts University View Entire Review
Studying for 4 months in Sevilla through Sweet Briar JYS did completely change me--in a great way. I became very independent while there, and also gained a tremendous love for Spanish culture. After my time with JYS, I finished college graduating with a honors B.A. in Spanish, and wrote my final thesis entirely in Spanish. I... - Amherst College View Entire Review
INCREDIBLE! Worth every euro! - Yale University View Entire Review
My study abroad in Spain opened up a new passion for cultural exchange. I went on to study abroad again, and am now working abroad. I know at least five other members of my JYS class who are doing the same thing. - Northwestern University View Entire Review

It was totally worthwhile. - Tufts University View Entire Review
