Past Review Not Much Culture Shock, Still Worthwhile SIT Study Abroad: Switzerland - International Studies and Multilateral Diplomacy

"yes it was. I learned alot, but to me personally, I would have wanted morem of a culture shock. The Swiss culture wasn't much different from American Culture. In that respect I would have wanted a different location, but apart from that, I had a good time. "

Past Review Study Abroad In Kenya Was Enriching, Intellectually Stimulating, And Difficult SIT Study Abroad: Kenya - Global Health and Human Rights

"My study abroad experience was worthwhile in ways that I cannot fully describe, probably ever. Choosing to study abroad in a developing country is a decision that is courageous, I think.

"Definately. However, I would have liked some more academic interaction with people from my houst-country. One thing that really stands out in this program is the 2 week North/South excursion.
