Past Review Hong Kong
It's Hong Kong that really gave me the chance to rethink the experience in the States. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
The abroad experience allowed me to interact with people from all over the world who do not hold americanized views, thus enlightening and intriguing. My life is forever changed for the better, more critical of my actions, and actions of the US. The immense culture and way of studying abroad truly needs to be known and I feel pe... - University of California - Merced View Entire Review

Past Review Great Blast
Hong Kong is a place where you'll see many things both similar and different from the US. you'll definitely notice some major cultural differences in your first couple days there. Sometimes it can be a little daunting, but it all adds to the fun. - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
yes - San Jose State University View Entire Review
All in all, my experiences were amazing in Hong Kong because I fulfilled and surpassed my academic, personal and professional goals. Academically, I was most definitely challenged by the coursework. It was a unique experience because they were all classes I would not have found at my home university. The classes not only broaden... - Villanova University View Entire Review

I loved my time abroad and I want to go back to Asia in the near future. I learned a lot about myself, different cultures, and different forms of politics while there. I enjoy challenging myself and being independent and living abroad offers that kind of life. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
This gave me another perspective on how people live. It expanded my understanding of the world. - University of California - Merced View Entire Review
As stated previously, being able to have an extremely flexible schedule in academia allowed for weekend and week long trips to some of the most remote locations of my understanding of the world. I would try to study abroad again in a heartbeat. - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
Absolutely worthwhile- I probably would have never traveled to Asia just for leisure. Living there for six months however changed my perspective of it and has influenced me to want to return soon. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
It was worthwhile for the friends I met, the sites in southeast asia I visited, and the chance to see how rigorously east Asian students study. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I have gone through all the stages of culture shock. I have seen with my eyes the differences in culture and business between various countries. During my stay, China, Japan, and Korea have been in great turmoils and seeing the impact of such events taught me a lot about sensitivity to global awareness. This experience had more ... - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
Yes, studying abroad was absolutely worthwhile. You learn to appreciate things that we have here in America and the way other people around the world live. Studying abroad gives you a more well rounded view of the world and current issues. Hong Kong is a great place to study because it accepts foreigners, yet is an exotic exp... - Tufts University View Entire Review
