What Students Say
Peter Munger | 10 Weeks in Valencia, Spain
Describe your trip: Amazing. It was one of the best experiences in my life.
What did you learn? I gained confidence since I was able to successfully adapt in a foreign country on my own.
Would you go back? Yes! I know I will go back.
Where next? Not sure yet, but I plan on returning to Europe ... especially Spain.
Any advice? If you're considering it ... do it! Before you go, try to learn the language and learn about the place you will be staying. Also, do other trips while you're there. Travel and Study Abroad will change your life!
Tony Stockl | 10 Weeks in Florence, Italy
Describe your trip: Enchanting!
What did you learn? More in those 10 weeks than in my entire life – culture. I found my identity there.
Where next? Havana, Cuba. Once you study abroad, you can't stop.
Would you go back? Of course! I plan on teaching English in Florence in two years then, hopefully, the rest of my life.
Any advice? Don't be cautious of asking for more financial aid if you can't afford it. Other than that, believe me when I say that studying abroad will change your life for the better. Also buy your own groceries! But also try the authentic restaurants.
Kiersten Snel | 10 Weeks in Florence, Italy
Describe your trip: Celebration of life!
What did you learn? The understanding and appreciation for a culture that is so much older and richer than America's, and seeing a way of life where who you are and what you believe is more important than what you do for a living and what kind of car you drive.
Where next? Anywhere. I just love traveling and experiencing other ways of life and styles of living.
Would you go back? Absolutely! I plan on returning to teach in Florence after I obtain my teaching degree.
Any advice? Do it! It is the best kind of education any student can hope to receive to learn about life firsthand and not just through a book.
Sarah Landsberg | 10 Weeks in London, England
What did you learn? A lot about myself and others that made it completely worth it. It opened my eyes to so many different places and experiences.
Where next? Back to the UK or to France. However, there is a chance I might be studying in Italy and Greece soon.
Would you go back? In a heartbeat!
Any advice? Go. Follow your own path, even if the place you choose seems cliché. There is nothing like living and experiencing a new country.
