Abroad In Cyprus Past Review

By (Management, Bennett College) - abroad from 01/22/2015 to 05/27/2015 with

University of Nicosia - Global Semesters: Nicosia - Semester in Cyprus

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
My semester abroad was a terrific one. Cyprus is a beautiful place. At first it was a little rocky because the weather was not what i expected nor did i know anyone; however, that did not last long. i was quickly able to hit it off with the people in the program as well as the people in the country. I soon found out how amazing Cyprus was from the views, to the cities, to the events, and even some of the people. overall i had a great experience.
