September 13, 2017 Life Changing!
I learned a lot from my experience abroad. I learned how to be more confident and come out of my comfort zone. I developed friendships with people I see lasting for a life time and creating memories I will cherish forever. The whole experience was worthwhile and I hope to be able to visit Australia again in the future. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I learned a lot about another country as well as a lot about myself. This was a journey where independence was needed and I was immersed in activities and situations that I would never imagined myself to be in years ago. Even being in a country that is pretty similar to the United States, there was a lot of culture and history t... - California Lutheran University View Entire Review

If I could sum all of Australia up in one word, it would be unforgettable. Everything we did there, from scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef with TEAN, to going on adventures in the rainforest, to sunset dinner cruises and everything in between, it was all unforgettable. The friends I met and the lessons I learned are ones I won... - University of Kentucky View Entire Review

I gained the experience of living in a new country and culture, I learned to cook and be more independent, I became more appreciative of the people back home and realized how blessed I am to have had such I wonderful opportunity. I am going home with a hunger to see more of the world. Most importantly, this trip has helped me ov... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Not only did I build lifelong friendships abroad, but I also learned how cultures can vary around the world and how to adapt to different environments. This was the most amazing experience I have ever encountered. The people and places that I saw were truly amazing. - Griffith University View Entire Review

December 12, 2015 Amazing
Studying abroad helped me grow more independent and helped me become more culturally aware of the world around me. Being able to watch american news while in Australia and to hear Australians comments on major issues gave me a unique perspective on how other parts of the world view some of the major issues america faces. I also ... - University of Hartford View Entire Review

I originally made the decision to study abroad for personal growth reasons, but I ended up learning more than I ever thought I would. I had never traveled outside of the country before, and the prospect of it terrified me. Pushing myself outside of my comfort zone helped me to grow as an individual. I am by no means the same p... - Bryant University View Entire Review

What I gained from this experience was learning more about myself than I have ever before. I think that starting new in a brand new place with brand new people is something everyone can do because they can leave behind their past and begin anew and that is so refreshing. I definitely intend to work abroad after this experience... - Stonehill College View Entire Review
February 03, 2015 Dream Semester Come True
Choosing The Education Abroad Network's program at Griffith University in Gold Coast, Australia changed my life so much. From the first day of the program when I met staff members at the airport to the farewell dinner, I felt like I had found my second home. I was able to experience different cities up and down the east coast of... - Drake University View Entire Review

It was incredible! I can't wait to keep traveling and hopefully end up back in Australia again soon. - University of Kentucky View Entire Review
October 18, 2014 Best Days Of My Life
What did I gain from studying abroad? Everything. A global and humbling perspective, lifelong memories and friendships, the courage and confidence to truly do anything I set my mind to (cheesy, but it's the truth), and a really, really strong case of wanderlust :) So, of course it was worthwhile. I would go back this very day I ... - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
My experience abroad was the absolute best. I got to live in a new place, meet new people from different cultures, and see places I never thought I would get to see. It opens up your eyes living somewhere else. You see the differences and similarities between cultures, and it allows you to bring new ideas you learned abroad back... - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Griffith University
I think the biggest lesson I learned while being abroad was to do something that you love, not because someone else wants you to do it. I came across many occasions in Australia where I really wanted to do something but no one else wanted to or didnt have the time. Instead of skipping out on the opportunity, I went for it alone.... - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
This experience was so worthwhile. I learned what it is like to live outside the US and how other people view the US, which was very eyeopening and humbling. In addition, I learned how to responsible and safety travel the world by myself, learning that this is not as hard as you think it is, gaining valuable knowledge about plan... - California Lutheran University View Entire Review

From this experience I learn how to be a more confident person and to take more chances that were out of my comfort zone. I learned about different cultures and different people through all the traveling I did. I learned a lot about the education differences in Australia compared to the US. It was completely worthwhile. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

You learn so much more than academics while you are abroad. You learn about cultures, food, people, yourself, and the world in a way that just can't be described. Nothing will ever compare to these four and a half months that I spent overseas and it was the most worthwhile experience I have ever been a part of. - Bryant University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about other cultures and other countries, however living abroad taught me a lot about myself which I found most important. - Bryant University View Entire Review

Anything and everything. This was the best decision I have ever made in my life. The most life altering experience I have ever had. I learned so much about independence and travel. I decided to go abroad not knowing a single soul and it made the experience even more exciting. I made lifelong friends, saw a different perspective ... - University of Tampa View Entire Review

I learned so much about myself as well as the new culture I was immersed in. A semester abroad pushes you outside your comfort zone and forces you to try new things you will not regret. The experiences and memories create friendships that could last a lifetime. - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review

I came back with a massively bigger understand not only of Australian culture, but of my own culture and travel in general. I got to see the comparisons of my own upbringing and other's, while gaining a larger respect for others in the process. - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
I learned so much about so many different kinds of people from all over the world. I also learned to put myself out there and do things, even if they scare me. This was the most worthwhile experience of my life. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
My experience was definitely worthwhile, and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. It takes you out of your comfort zone and allows you to open yourself up to new experiences. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity that allows you to assimilate yourself into a new culture while you are young and impressionable. It's hard t... - Clemson University View Entire Review
I learned to put myself out of my comfort zone whenever possible. I learned to do something each day that makes me a little uncomfortable. This is how you meet some of the most amazing people, do some of the most amazing activities, have the most amazing experiences, and learn some new amazing things about yourself. I loved be... - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
