Very worthwhile, I would definitely do it again. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I got to know the Spanish culture, explore both Madrid and other major European cities during the semester. Travelling was really were I ended up enjoying myself the most. Host families were a pain as well the classes. Studying abroad is definitely worthwhile. Studying abroad with this program is not. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I became fluent in Spanish, became acclimated to a new culture, and experienced more than I can put into words. It was definitely worthwhile. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I learned how to travel independently because I didn't have my parents there to tell me everything to do and where to go. And it helped me get out of my bubble. - Trinity University View Entire Review

I met a lot of different types of people, and that has made me even more accepting. I also feel that I understand another culture after living with my host family. I will always be in contact with them, and feel that I have a second home in Spain. I would study abroad again if I could! I absolutely loved it. My speaking skills h... - Barnard College View Entire Review

As cliche as it sounds, I learned a lot about myself (my studying habits, my partying habits, how social I am, what is important to me, my budgeting ability, how easy it is to make new friends, importance of religion to me, that I'm a homebody, I appreciate art and museums more than clubs and bars, etc). I gained visiting AMAZIN... - Fordham University View Entire Review
Without a doubt one of the best if not THE best decision I've ever made in my life. I improve my people skills and was also able to learn how to overcome language barriers. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned to appreciate cultures other than the U.S. all while stepping out of my comfort zone. - Fordham University View Entire Review
I learned a ton more Spanish, and travelling was fantastic. I also learned a good deal in my courses. Definitely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained an insight into another culture that I would never have been able to get otherwise. It was absolutely worthwhile. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Absolutely yes. I gained a new perspective about myself and the world. I now value life so much more than before and am so grateful to have had this experience. - Le Moyne College View Entire Review
Definitely worth going abroad. There is so much to learn from people that live in different countries and have different customs that you. Europe is a great place to go because travel is easy and usually pretty cheap. - Syracuse University View Entire Review
Changed my life. There are beautiful people all over this planet with incredible originality and uniqueness, and I plan on seeing as much of that beauty now that I've studied abroad. I also realized how much the US impacts the entire world, and how little we really understand about all the other countries and peoples we influenc... - Trinity University View Entire Review
Yes! Gained independence and confidence and learned a lot more Spanish. - Trinity University View Entire Review
So worthwhile! I improved my Spanish, learned to be more independent, got exposed to different food and cultures, and had an experience of a lifetime. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I had a great internship at a small Spanish firm where I learned how businesses operate overseas. I also absorbed a lot of the Spanish culture, which I have brought back here to the States. Overall, I found the experience to be very worthwhile. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and the culture of Spain, but also about my own country and perspectives on it from the outside. It was worthwhile. - Trinity University View Entire Review

I loved studying abroad, although I might choose a different university. I loved seeing new cultures and experiencing Spain daily. I felt like I could live there at the end and I miss Spain everyday. - Trinity University View Entire Review
It opened my mind up to new experiences and taught me that it is never too late to learn another language. - Fordham University View Entire Review
I became a much more independent and confident person after studying abroad. Living in a new city with a different language and culture pushed me out of my comfort zone. Traveling to many countries and cities with other students taught me to be more independent. Studying abroad was extremely worthwhile. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing
Absolutely! Most importantly, you learn about yourself, people in general, how the world works, and things like that. You will be left with many questions to ponder. - Fordham University View Entire Review
definitely yes, my major reasons to study abroad were to improve my Spanish, learn more about my Spanish roots, reconnect with myself, improve my GPA, and i know i accomplished it all - Syracuse University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and about the United States' place and impact in the world. Living with a host mom helped me see life through the eyes of someone from a very different culture. The people I met in Madrid and in the other countries I visited helped me realize how powerful the United States is and how the English lang... - Syracuse University View Entire Review
