"I learned how to be independent, live on my own, travel and do the things I want to do. I got to see so many amazing places across Europe and the UK. London is my favorite city in the world now. Definitely worthwhile."
"I absolutely loved my experience in Singapore. It was honestly the best decision I made coming into College. I learned so much about the Asian culture and what it is like to live on the other side of the world. The traveling that we were able to do was incredible to Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indo..."
"100% worthwhile. The program itself still has some kinks that need to be worked out. However, Singapore is a fantastic city and a great place to be for business. It is quite different from anything I'd ever experienced before. I gained a new appreciation for various cultures and gained a much greater understanding of global ..."
"I became much more independent during my time abroad--even more so than at Villanova. I became very comfortable navigating the city, and planning travel/traveling to other cities in a group of students. The internship component also gave me great insight into international business and the Public Relations sector."
"The abroad experience was definitely worthwhile. Not many universities allow freshmen to study abroad, let alone intern as well during their first year. Being able to study in a foreign country, immersing in the local culture, and working there is a privilege. The whole trip was wonderful. Going to Singapore was definitely o..."
"Cultures around the world are so different and vary so much. It was great to see this firsthand. I have done a lot of traveling in my life but never lived out of the US for this long. It was a great time and the country was a great place to visit. The program was annoying at times and was very difficult to work with, but the..."
"I learned a lot of independence. You're on your own for a lot of things, so I am definitely better at shopping and cooking and cleaning for myself. I'm more responsible. I learned how to budget money. I'm way more grateful for the comforts of home and America. I gained a knowledge of other cultures and how people truly live in o..."
"I learned a lot about culture differences in the workplace and teaching standards. It was very difficult and definitely not for slacker students. Only the internship makes it worthwhile, but yes, it was worthwhile."
"I got to see a completely different learning style and worked on time management. I got to meet people and travel to places that I would never get the chance to do without abroad. I learned how to make the most of opportunities and deal with being so far from family. "
"It was an experience of a lifetime. Between living in London, traveling, gaining valuable work experience, and taking classes in an international setting, I can't think of a better way to spend 4 months. It was very rewarding to experience foreign cultures first hand and to then put in the time to understand why certain cultur..."
"It was a fantastic experience! London is a great city with so much to offer, and the program sets us up right in central London is a great neighborhood with free transportation throughout the city. The internships were great and gave us really good international experience."
"I was able to travel Europe and learn just how important it is to me to continue to see the world. This program was most definitely worthwile. The work placement was an incredible opportunity to begin really, really thinking about what career I see myself pursuing and how I want to go about gaining more experience."
