Overall Experience
January 04, 2017 Extremely Mediocure!
I needed to do more research on the location before going. Yes it is a beautiful country with good food. I did not realize how slow and calm it would turn out to be. Slow and calm did get old after a while and I found myself counting the days before I went home. Was it worthwhile? For me, no. - The Citadel View Entire Review
I gained a lot of confidence and became more independent while here. When you're planning your own trips to other countries, there are so many aspects and components that you have to think about and because of this I believe I have personally grown. - Susquehanna University View Entire Review

It was a great time, tried to take advantage of all the opportunities I possibly could. Met so many amazing people and made friends that I know I will stay in touch with. Administration was helpful but I wish they let us know about transportation issues before hand - Pace University View Entire Review

I really enjoyed my semester in cyprus. My favorite part of the semester was the traveling outside of Cyprus. I also really enjoyed visiting the beaches and those activities, even though i was located in the only land locked city in cyprus. - Montana State University - Bozeman View Entire Review

April 15, 2016 Great Experience
My time spent abroad was a wonderful experience that I would not take back. Through this program, I have grown as a person and learned things about myself that I would not have learned at my home university. This program allowed me to travel to 5 countries in less than four months, something I never thought would be possible. - Illinois State University View Entire Review

The Mediterranean program was really amazing. Traveling to Italy, Greece, and Spain for spring break was incredible! Life in Cyprus is nice and laid back. The schooling is also laid back, which is nice for traveling around. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
April 14, 2016 Cyprus
The Global Semesters program "Semester in the Mediterranean" in Cyprus was awesome and I would absolutely recommend it. Not only was travel within in Cyprus included in the program fee, but so was 10 days of travel to Italy, Greece, and Spain. The program coordinators in Cyprus are very nice and helpful, and overall I think the ... - Clemson University View Entire Review
