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

Absolutely! I learned a lot about myself, made new friends with whom I will keep in touch for the rest of my life, improved my Spanish, learned a lot about Spanish art and culture, expanded my horizons through travel and new experiences, and made great connections with my host family. - Tufts University View Entire Review

The experience gave me a taste of the people and lifestyle in Spain. Due to its conservative culture, I appreciate the freedoms we have in the U.S. even more. - Tufts University View Entire Review
It was the most worthwhile experience of my entire life. I learned to speak Spanish fluently, learned to sleep while my roommate gently snored one foot away, and learned how to eat a prawn buried in Paella that still has his head on. - Syracuse University View Entire Review
