I feel as though I have grown as a person. I know I can be away from home for a long time and be okay. I have learned that I can’t live with four people at the same time, because of how we lived as individuals. But everything i have learned was worthwhile and I would recommend to anyone who wants to study abroad - University of Maine - Farmington View Entire Review

I gained newfound knowledge on the outsiders perspective of America and some great insight into the culture of Cyprus.

I learned to adapt in situations quickly. I think I could have learned these skills elsewhere but I had fun traveling - Clemson University View Entire Review
I learned how to fend for myself in a foreign country where few people know English well. I also learned how to relax and accept the world around me. It was a worthwhile experience, one that I needed to have I suppose. I also was able to travel to the Netherlands, which was one of my main goals when coming abroad. I loved that p... - St. Ambrose University View Entire Review

Choose wisely before you select where you want to study abroad. Read lots of reviews. Do your own research. In my experience, I learned how to room with more than one other person. I also got more confident with taking public transportation. - Hendrix College View Entire Review

People around the world aren’t as different as you think. While we should celebrate our uniqueness, we must recognize our similarities, and treat others like we want to be treated, because they feel how we feel. - Boise State University View Entire Review
Prepare for a lot of free time to learn more about yourself or find things to do. Classes require absolutely nothing from you so you will have a lot of time for self-evaluation. - Hendrix College View Entire Review
Personal identify development and incredible, genuine friends. A very worthwhile semester. - Clemson University View Entire Review
I am now an international citizen, which has lit a fire inside of me that won't stop growing anytime soon. - University of Alabama - Tuscaloosa View Entire Review
I learned so much about the culture here in Cyprus and how enjoyable it is to live in such a small place where everyone knows everybody. It was a very intimate study abroad experience and I feel like I was really able to connect with other people in the program and learn a lot about myself as well. - Clemson University View Entire Review

May 15, 2018 Cool
I gained so much knowledge about myself and I reconciled with a lot of my flaws and things that were holding me back in America. Also, I gained a lot of knowledge about different cultures. The best thing was being able to mix culture with my academics. I’ve learned a lot about Cypriotic culture and Greek culture during class. It... - Susquehanna University View Entire Review
