I finally felt rested, which I can't ever remember being in my life. It was 100% worthwhile. Julianna Koury - Wellesley College View Entire Review
- gained experience navigating an unfamiliar (smaller) city, organizing my own travel plans in a foreign country (transportation, accommodation, food, activities), learned what to do when plans don't work out - extremely worthwhile experience, exciting to leave the U.S. and see the opposite side of the world A student - Middlebury College View Entire Review
This trip was an interesting experience as I was able to participate in adventures I most likely would not have under other circumstances. I learned a lot about people and other countries from the many people I encountered and lived with. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned so much about this country, it's people, and it's landscape. I challenged myself in ways I never had the chance to before and it was absolutely worth it. I wouldn't have changed anything about my trip. I am so glad I tried new things and met so many amazing people, American and local. The people and the adventures ... A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Reflecting, there are no negative things that come to mind. Especially coming from Wellesley, I learned that there really is more to life than getting that grade or being in as many orgs as possible. It is absolutely worthwhile to get out into the world and experience new things. I learned to respect what I want out of life, and... Chesley H - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I got to travel all around New Zealand. It was not a life-changing cultural experience, but it was a lot of fun and a good chance to travel abroad . A student - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I definitely learned a lot about myself, living more independently, balancing exploration of a new place with study, and planning economical trips. A student - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I am more independent and confident than I was before Europe. I traveled to several countries on my own, and it allowed me time and space to depend on myself. It also helped me learn how to interact with all kinds of people, from different cultures and different languages. Colleen B - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I had an amazing time while i was abroad. I was able to balance school work and seeing the country very well. I am now more aware of the differences of people like the native Maori people. I took every opportunity that was presented to me and my experience benefited from that. Eric L - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
Abroad was extremely worthwhile and I learned so much while I was there. It was a very independent experience for me - the first time having a single room (in my entire life), I didn't go with anyone else from my home university, and I traveled alone to Australia and Japan while I was there. I learned a lot about myself and had ... Amelia Jones - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about living on my own and being self-sufficient. It was absolutely worthwhile. A student - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned some independence, to respect the privileges we are given, and how to just enjoy the world around me. It was definitely worthwhile. Ashtyn C - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I think I gained a lot of maturity while I was abroad. I really got a chance to explore myself away from the pressures of my parents and him university and really began to grow into the person I would like to become later on in my life. Nicole D - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself in terms of how to overcome difficulties that I used to depend on others to help me with. NZ is a generally safe and easy country in which to travel, so I learned how to travel and hike alone which helped me realize that I could be more independent than I had been at Midd. This experience also helped... Kiri E - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained a better understanding of other cultures and world views A student - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone that has the chance to do it. Christopher P - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Without a doubt, the best experience ever. This has enticed me to consider grad school abroad and/or future careers abroad. Collette S - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I loved my experience! It was the best decision I have ever made thus far in my life. I have so many friends from all over the world that I could network almost anywhere. I learned who I was down there and became more confident in myself and what I do and believe. It was great to see all the different cultures living together...
