Program Reviews:
Spring 2017 Participant
The best part about this program was living in student housing with people from all over the world. My "kitchen" had students from 12 or so different countries and we got to learn so much about each person's home life, slang and food. We switched off having Friday dinners every few weeks to share our favorite recipes from home with others. We got very close during our brief time together. After I left school, I even traveled and stayed with a few friends I had made during my time abroad.

Although it may seem cliche, the self-reliance and independence I experienced while away from my typical routines, friends and loved ones gave me a confidence in my ability to persevere in tough or stressful situations. Forcing yourself out of your comfort zone and learning to embrace unfamiliarity creates opportunities for personal growth and achievement I couldn't have experienced at home.

I think the best advice I could give to a prospective study abroad student is that it's so incredibly important to do your research and find a program that will suit your interests or academic goals. Remember that your professors and advisors won't be there with you, so their opinion isn't as important as what you think will work best for you!
