As difficult as it was to be away from home, I wouldn’t take this experience back for anything, even if it was different than what I wanted to be. –Marya, Spring 2013
Studying abroad can be very challenging and stressful at times with the language barriers, different currencies, time zones, and hot, smelly public transportation – but its things like walking past a 600 year old church every day on the way to school, making friends with people from all over the world, and reaching the top of La Sagrada Familia or Neuschwanstein Castle and looking don’t at your view – all of these things make the little everyday hassles completely worth it. –Nicole N., Spring 2013
I have met students from all over the world, had opportunities that I never imagined that I would have, and even had the opportunity to travel with a friend I met in class where our only common language was German! It was great to be able to put my skills to the test and really learn to embrace trying new things. – Nicole L., Spring 2013
