A Look Back

* What did you like most about the program?
  • I liked that Exeter was a small, pretty town, and the atmosphere was relaxed. I also really liked that we were able to stay in dorms and integrate ourselves into the daily student life at Exeter.
* What could be improved?
  • The Exeter study abroad center did very little to prepare us for requirements at Exeter; they didn't tell us how we were expected to turn in papers or to take exams, information everyone at Exeter expected us to know but no one bothered to tell us.
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? I don't know.
