Israel and Jordan: Didn't want to leave Past Review

By (Psychology, Carroll College) for

University of Jordan: Amman - Direct Enrollment & Exchange

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Yes, I would do it over and over again if I could afford it. I wish it was longer or never ended. I fell in love with Israel and Jordan and neither I nor none of my group wanted to leave.

Review Your Program

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

On-site administration of your program

Students were treated like peers while learning as a team group and relying on each other while being able to integrate with locals as well.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

We stayed in high class hotels, never felt unsafe for a moment in the hotel or in the neighborhood surrounding the hotel.

* Food:

Food was fantastic. Hotels provided breakfast and dinner buffets and lunch was our own responsibility but everything was fantastic.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Our course was based on the culture and our multiple daily field trips. Seeing the places of the Bible and places that are older than anything in America is breath taking.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)
