"I learned so much about England and gained a love for all of it's history and culture. You also learn a lot about yourself when you are isolated in a foreign country with students who you don't know very well. I highly recommend having this experience!"
"I learned that people are similar wherever you go. They have very similar problems and similar concerns. However, I was able to learn how historically people have dealt with those problems and how that has affected us today. I learned more about culture and attitudes than I would have just reading about it because I learned i..."
"I really felt that we got a good mix of being in the culture and being able to be tourist and see a lot of places. We lived in dorms for a month in Shanghai and I really got a feel for college life in China and I was able to see a part of their culture that I would have never seen. "
"I learned to take all the experiences I can while I can. Although many times my roommates didn't want to participate, I went out with other friends and looked for my own adventures and took advantage of the many amazing experiences offered in a different country. "
"It was absolutely worthwhile! I learned so much about early Church History and gained such a stronger testimony in so many areas. I feel more confident with the knowledge that I will need as a missionary, as well as study habits, public speaking, and teaching."
"I can't even describe all that I gained. I learned about who I am and what I am capable of. Yes, I learned so much more about the culture and about Spanish than I knew before but I also learned about my culture specifically and who I am and what I have the potential to be."
"I learned so much about literature and writing from my excellent professors. I got to see so many things in Scotland, Wales, and England. I hiked through pastures, woods, and climbed mountains. I made very good friends with the 25 or so people I came with and hiked with. This experience was one of the most worthwhile things ..."
"It was definitely worth the experience! I feel like we saw enough and experienced enough of a difference in luxuries, habits, language, culture and religion that we were filled with gratitude and a realization of how much we really have in America. I feel satisfied with the experience, and hope to return to China someday."
"The Oxford program was inspiring. From the moment I arrived, I felt an energy within the group. Everyone had different passions and backgrounds, but we were all united in wanting to use our talents to change the world. But it wasn’t just the group; it was the place. There is a depth to Oxford that is hard to put into words. As w..."
"I learned a lot from my peers. We were all different, but we all had a quality or more than one quality, that was a great addition to the group as a whole. We grew spiritually as we were able to share our testimonies and pray together at devotionals, family home evening, and church services. We learned from our experiences toget..."
"That there are so many wonderful beautiful things in this world, there are so many different kinds of people, even ones from our own country that you might not know very much about. I loved this experience. I learned how much i sincerely love nature and the outdoors. "
