Overall Experience
Going abroad was extremely worthwhile. I gained a new level of independence and confidence in my ability to make things work even far from home, not previously knowing anybody. I also gained a new appreciation for academics and community at Middlebury after attending a big school which lacked the key aspects that I love about Mi... - Middlebury College View Entire Review

Definitely learned how to be on my own in terms of living on my own (to an extent), being in a new place, etc. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I became more confident in my abilities to achieve what I had set out to achieve. This experience was way more than worthwhile, I grew and matured in ways I hadn't even imagined and have come out a better person. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I learned how to live independently and make my own decisions. I got to meet amazing people of New Zealand and other international students. I also had a taste of New Zealand's culture which is different from my own culture. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I learned what the US looks like from the outside. It was very eye-opening. - Cornell University View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing
I learned so many things about myself and other people. I learned how to make friends when you don't know anyone, and live and get along with all different types of people. It was nice to know that if one day I have to move to a brand new city I will survive. - Marywood University View Entire Review
I gained personal independence, perspective and greater worldview. I didn't gain much in the academic sense, but in the personal realm I grew as a person, student and traveler. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
yes worhtwhile, the program was poor - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
I learned that there is a lot more to see and learn about in this world. I took classes about subjects I knew nothing about and that I would not be able to at my home university. I got to experience what it was like to go to a much larger university and live in a city, which was always something I wanted to do. Although by the e... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
January 23, 2018 My Time In New Zealand
I learned so much about Māori and New Zealand culture. I also learned about some ways in which the United States can improve, especially in education. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
August 29, 2017 Amazing Experience
I gained independence, being able to travel alone in NZ and explore. I came to NZ not knowing anyone - with no one from my school coming with me - and I am so thankful for that because I was really pushed out of my comfort zone to meet new people. I met incredible people that I will continue to keep in touch with - totally worth... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how slow my life down and think about what is important to me, as well as gaining a newfound appreciation for the relationships I had with friends and family back home. I learned that it's really not that hard to live on your own in another country and I look forward to traveling a lot more. - University of Tulsa View Entire Review
Past Review A Fun Time
I got the chance to travel and see a really cool part of the world. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I feel like I learned a lot about local culture and the Pacific island culture. It also helped me step out of my comfort zone a lot and allowed me to meet some really awesome people. It was definitely worthwhile and I would do a semester abroad again in a heartbeat, if I could! - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
Past Review Awesome!
It was an amazing experience that I won't forget - University of Texas - Arlington View Entire Review
How to travel on a budget, how to go with the flow and take things one day at a time. - Cornell University View Entire Review
Absolutely. Best experience of my life. I loved learning about the Maori culture and being able to compare it to Hawaii's own Native Hawaiian culture. - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
YES! without this experience i would be a different person! - SUNY - Buffalo View Entire Review
