University of Nicosia - Global Semesters: Nicosia - Semester in Europe (Multi-country)

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
"overall, my experience in Cyprus was amazing. I met life-long friends from all over the states that I hope to continue to keep in touch with. Cyprus was a beautiful island. Although I wished we had live somewhere on the coast line instead of Nicosia that would have been ideal. However, it makes since that we are so close to the university."
