Past Review Echte Liebe
So far I've learned about just European culture in general. It's a different way of life... and it's not better or worse... just different. - Illinois State University View Entire Review

Honestly it was the time of my life.. met amazing people and saw things I may never be able to see again. - Illinois State University View Entire Review

Had a great experience but if I had to do it all over again I might have chosen a place with sunny beaches. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
If I was not going to be a senior and needed to graduate on time, I would study abroad again in a heartbeat. One thing is for sure, I will come back to Europe many more times. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
