Great summer! Past Review

By (Colorado College) - abroad from 05/23/2018 to 06/19/2018 with

The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Thailand - Summer in Bangkok

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
It was a great experience! I'm so glad I went to Thailand with a study abroad program so I could learn about the country more in-depth, and this program was a great way to do it. I loved being able to stay in the dorms, and the class was really interesting. The timing worked out great with my schedule so I was able to do other things over the summer as well.
