One of the best decisions I made while in Seoul was to actively seek out a new experience every weekend, whether it be to go hiking, see a show, or just explore a new area of the city. Along with that, while living off campus was not planned it did provide me with a feeling of further immersion within the city. I was able to est... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

August 15, 2019 I Love Korea!!!
Most definitely worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself as a person and as a student. My goal academically was to learn more about Korea which I certainly did. I did try to learn more Korean, too, which I guess I did too, though it didn't really feel like it. I also learned how much I hate to be someplace where I don't speak th... - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
March 31, 2019 Great Time!
I learned that I can survive anywhere! But I think that came from being abroad in general instead of specifically being at Yonsei. It's a basic exchange program but your experience depends on whether or not you're willing to explore. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
June 17, 2018 Oh, Korea!
I learned how to be comfortable in speaking Korean. I always had trouble getting into a full conversation when I learned back home. I knew what the person was saying, but I always felt like my response needed to be perfect and so I got into the habit of planning what I was gonna say. While in my time here in South Korea, it's he... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

This experience has taught me that life is an... - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review
