I learned to go with the flow, a lot about Thai culture and art that I wasn't exposed to in my previous learning experiences, and a ton of great new food to eat! It was 100% worthwhile for me to travel by myself and be exposed to a new place and people to mature and prepare myself for life after college.

My study abroad experience was more than worthwhile! I gained a better insight into the global landscape and was able to spend time in a culture that is very different than my own. Through this, I believe that I am a more well rounded person and can tackle any issue that comes my way with a global perspective in mind.

Studying abroad introduced me to a whole new group of people. I was able to study their culture and how this impacts daily life, while also experiencing how western culture impacts their life.

I learned a lot about myself and how I should take a different perspective about the world. Global awareness is very important in society and we need to be mindful of other cultures, customs and traditions. This experience was worthwhile. I would never have been able to have this experience happen to me and I have met people tha... Chaunda W - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
