What Our Students are Saying
"Studying abroad was the best decision I ever made in my undergraduate education. The experiences, cultures, people and friends that I gained, as well as gaining a whole new meaning to independence, made this some of the most significant months of my life thus far. My life in South Africa will forever impact who I have and continue to become as a person."
Marielle M.Grand Valley State University
"My study abroad experience was the experience of a lifetime, where I made lifelong friends and found a home away from home. I recommend it to anyone who wants to see the world, learn about new cultures and become much more independent. I can't imagine my life if I hadn't studied abroad. It inspired me so much, and this is just the beginning of many adventures to come!"
