Overall Experience
I gained an intense understanding of different cultures and managing my self in different situation as well as working with many different types of people. It was an intense maturing experience. - Columbia University View Entire Review
November 14, 2016 Incredible
I became a much more responsible individual, keeping track of everything and not buying things I didn't need. I learned how to budget and get by with a minimal understanding of a language, as well as becoming more aware of different cultures and customs. It was 100% worthwhile. - Mercer County Community College View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. I gained a knowledge of myself and of this world that is unachievable anywhere else. - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review
