Overall Experience
It was an eye opening experience for personal as well as cultural reasons. I already knew what I wanted to study and the direction I wanted to go, but it gave me a chance to explore parts of the world that I would not have gotten to otherwise, meet people from all over, and see how people outside of the US live. - University of Florida View Entire Review
Studying abroad was so worthwhile. While there were some bad days when I got homesick I did love the experience. Living in a foreign country gives you an unique perspective that you wouldn't get from just visiting. It enhanced my feeling that my major is right for me and that I'm on the right track. - University of North Dakota View Entire Review
I loved studying abroad but it truly is what you make of it! - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I am now a more experienced traveller. I also look to make friends with everyone, as they can become a family for life. I realized not all cultures are the same, and depending on where you are, you should respect their traditions in the best way that you can. - Illinois State University View Entire Review

I believe that I gained countless qualities and understandings from my experience abroad. I learned so much about myself, became more independent and confident, and learned how to truly grasp and enjoy opportunities. I learned so much about different cultures and a new global outlook. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I learned that the rest of the world is very similar to the United States. People are people no matter where you go. I plan on living abroad after I graduate from college. This experience has given me the knowledge that I will be alright on my own and more than capable of making a life for myself no matter where I end up. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I would've rated it five stars if I wouldn't have had issues with accommodation. I feel like I have grown as an individual and have become more confident in myself. I now know that I can live independently, on a budget, in a foreign country- I dont think many people can say that when they are 20! - University of North Dakota View Entire Review
I definitely think this study abroad experience was worthwhile. I become more independent and confident person after this experience. - University of Leicester View Entire Review

Being abroad opened my eyes to what the whole world has to offer. It makes you a more well rounded person.
