January 22, 2016 Wish I Was Still There!
I learned that I would like to live in Barcelona upon graduation and I also learned about so many different cultures by traveling on the weekends. I would definitely recommend studying abroad, because it is the only time you will be able to travel to so many places for such a low cost. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

i really enjoyed my experience, but i wish i would've have gone somewhere where the spoke less english. i wanted to have some more culture shock when arriving, but i really didnt experience any when arriving. - Simmons College View Entire Review
I can go on and on about what this experience has taught me; it's almost hard to explain. Everyone will tell you that you have to study abroad because it's an experience of a lifetime and it really is. JUST DO IT. - California State University - Northridge View Entire Review

Past Review Life Changing
This experience helped me grow as an individual. I learned about a different culture as I was actually living in it, something that made it even more fascinating, and got to travel to places I had never had the opportunity to visit before. I can definitely see myself going back to Barcelona and even living there someday. - Bentley University View Entire Review
I learned to live on my own in a city which will be very helpful moving forward. I got to see a lot of the world and gain new perspectives.The experiences i had abroad will contribute to future success. - Bentley University View Entire Review
It was completely worth while! I learned so much about the Catalan culture and the Spanish lifestyle. I went on 5 or 6 trips outside of Spain and that was also an amazing experience. Every culture is so different and unique, it's fun to learn about them all. - Bentley University View Entire Review
I learned about the Spanish culture and controversies with Catalunya, also I learned about all the cities I visited during my time abroad. It was a great experience and it was definitely worthwhile. - Bentley University View Entire Review
I learned how to live on my own and travel to different countries and to communicate with people who speak languages foreign to me. I would do it again in a heartbeat. - Bentley University View Entire Review
Past Review
I wish I could write for days but I can't, and writing a few paragraphs won't do anymore for you than a sentence will. I'll keep this brief in hopes you'll read it. You won't be the same and, moreover, you'll be thankful for it. - Providence College View Entire Review
