Carlow Dunluce CastleSee what former Study Abroad students have to say:

"This was actually my first trip outside of the United States and I was surprised while reflecting on the trip to realize how much I learned about the USA by observing a different countries culture."
- Alex (Panama)

"Another great part was being able to see how businesses conduct themselves in different countries. A first hand look is priceless compared to just learning about it. Going to the historic Lloyds in London was amazing. I was able to see where the insurance industry started, how it has evolved, and how it still conducts everyday business. There are a lot of companies from all over the globe that work inside of Lloyds creating a crazy fast pace environment. Being able to talk to high representatives, make connections, and get an exclusive tour was something I will brag about for years."
- Payton (London and Paris)
“I don’t think I can even put into words how this experience changed my life… I not only learned about another culture and about other people, but I learned a lot about myself as well.”
- Zina (Costa Rica)

“I am really surprised about how much independence I have gained from the experience and how much I learned. I greatly improved my Spanish and have so much more motivation to learn more.”
- Wendy (Spain)
