Overall Experience
I made great friends with international and local students, traveled to tons of different countries and also all over England, and learned about history, culture, travel, etc. It was definitely worthwhile. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
I learned so much about the world outside of the US. Even countries like England present significant differences from life in the Us, and being able to experience other cultures in England and around Europe has changed my outlook on the world. - Birmingham-Southern College View Entire Review
December 13, 2016 An Interesting Semester.
I definitely learned how to enjoy my own company. I definitely became for confident in myself and my actions. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
It was worthwhile because I feel more responsible, and confident in my ability to be on my own in a very unfamiliar place. I feel as though I have even more common sense skills than I did prior to this experience. I gained many life skills of which cannot be taught in a classroom. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review

I became a lot more confident interacting with people I didn't know and traveling on my own. I also gained some amazing friends and made great connections. It was definitely worthwhile. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
I did a lot of travelling solo, which really upped my self-confidence. I also made some amazing friendships that I have every intention of making last forever. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
Yes! I had the time of my life and met so many great friends. Along with the ability to travel, when I was not traveling the time I spent at the university was amazing. The overall openness to me from my flat mates was really nice. It changed my mind about what I want to do after I graduate, and I am now hoping to get a job ... - Birmingham-Southern College View Entire Review
