Overall Experience
April 04, 2019 Incredible
It was incredibly worthwhile. It changed my life. - Saint Michael's College View Entire Review
Being Ecuadorian, I gained more knowledge and a valuable experience about what it is to study in my own country. - Trinity University View Entire Review
yes it was worth it - Trinity University View Entire Review
I gained a little more experience. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned that getting by every day in a new culture requires courage and perseverance, but it's not that scary once you put yourself out there. - Presbyterian College View Entire Review
I learned so much in Quito, Not only did my Spanish improve, I gained self confidence, an aprrectiation for all that I have, meaningful relationships with my host family, and so much more. I wish I was still there. - Presbyterian College View Entire Review
Past Review
The most significant aspect of my study abroad experience was the knowledge acquired in the summer course. The interaction with local people, foreign language, cultural shock was not influential since I did took the course at the country where I was born and raised: Ecuador. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I was given the opportunity to reflect on educational systems, globalization, and the structures that affect the ways I live. It was absolutely a worthwhile experience, and I would recommend it for anyone interested in a study abroad program with a focus on fair-trade, sustainability, and social justice. - Juniata College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself, including just how independent I can be. It was definitely worthwhile. - Utica College View Entire Review
It was worth it, I learned to master Excel, Word and PowerPoint. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review Summer In Quito
it was definitely worthwhile - Trinity University View Entire Review
University is what you make of it, appreciate every experience and opportunity. Yes it was worthwhile. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Yes, but it wasn't a study abroad experience for me. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile. If I weren't so caught up in things at my home university I would go back and do this same exact program again (and again). Of course, it helped to give me a more global perspective on many things. I feel incredibly enriched and blessed to have gotten to participate. - Rice University View Entire Review
