What our students think

“My experience was radically different from my classmates. I lived an hour away, I worked three jobs and completed two internships all while in the program. Mostly I made friends with people in my community rather than at school.

My experience was far from typical, even gruelling at times. But I walked away having lived the best version of studying abroad and becoming the best version of myself–growing as a person, as a student, as a critical thinker and a writer. I loved ż and owe so much to this experience.”
