Spring 2012 Participant
Living in Seoul was a blast. The Korean people are so welcoming to foreigners. I loved the cultural aspect of living in Seoul. The city is huge and full of tall skyscrapers but at the same time the people are so traditional.I loved the food and the karaoke part of Seoul the most. I also loved the social scene in Korea. There are several swanky clubs that are fun to go to as well as a ton of bars that you will frequent.

I think that it's important to take full advantage of the chance you've been given. Go into it with an open mind, experience everything you can, meet and make endless friendships, and just enjoy and take in a culture that is different than your own. It was one of the most eye-opening, enlightening experiences I've ever had.

The exchange student program called KUBA at Korea University was my most rewarding experience while abroad. Making friendships with other exchange students and Korean students helps in feeling like your at home while abroad. Unfortunately, if you are trying to improve your Korean, your Korean KUBA buddies will not help much. But it is rewarding to know that you are helping them to practice their English. Making the lasting friendships that you do when you are abroad was the most rewarding aspect because I know that they will be lasting.
