    Semester Abroad
    05/24/2016

    I had an amazing experience with CEA London. Cassandra was such an amazing program director. She would drop anything she was doing if a student needed something. She really went above and beyond her job description. I really enjoyed the trips and activities that CEA had planned for us, they were nicely spread out and really got us out into the community and country. Overall, I really enjoyed this program and would come back and do it again if I could.

    How could this program be improved?

    The process before the program started was a bit confusing with the visa application and stuff like that. That could be improved.

    A Part of French History
    05/20/2016

    November 13th, 2015 is a day I will never forget. After I heard about the terrorist attacks that targeted numerous locations, many thoughts, including well wishes for victims families, ran through my mind: was it still safe to study abroad there? What precautions would be taken for students abroad? Both my parents and I were extremely anxious during the months leading up to my semester abroad. Before departure, CEA offered potential city relocations for students, as well as much reassurance that they would do everything they could to keep us safe in the upcoming semester. And that they did. They have implemented a survey system in which each student responds with their weekend plans and phone number so should there be an emergency, the staff knows their whereabouts. There is also an emergency number that students may call at any point during their semester. All in all, this was a stressful time on my parents, but CEA's staff made it that much easier on all of us. It is also pretty gratifying to know that I am a part of French history that will never be forgotten.

    How could this program be improved?

    I personally think the excursion/activities itinerary release could be a bit more organized. For example, we had a trip to Provence that was an overnight stay. We received our information about meeting time/location, schedule, etc. about one-two days in advance. I personally would have liked to know about a week in advance, especially if it was an overnight trip. But, the excursions themselves were well organized and a lot of fun!

    Adventure everywhere you go
    05/17/2016

    I was a student in Seville, Spain for a little over three months and it was the best experience of my life. The professors and directors of CEA helped shape my experience to the best it could be. I recommend going to every excursion CEA offers beacuse that is where you will truly learn what the country you are living in has to offer. One of my favorite excursions was when CEA took the program to Morocco. This adventure was an eye opening experience that you will not be able to find during your travels to cities such as Paris or London. Now don't get me wrong London and Paris were my favorite cities to visit but when I look over my experience abroad it was my excursion to Morocco where I learned the most about the world. We traveled to four different cities, spoke to students studying in Morocco, and even had the opportunity to ride a camel. What I learned during my travels was that it didn't matter which cities I visited; in the end what shaped me the most were the people/friends I made along the way. The success to a wonderful abroad experience is to meet knew friends, try new things, and never say no to a new adventure.

    CEA is Great!!
    05/16/2016

    Cassandra has done such an incredible job at making students feel like they have a family and support system abroad! She's such an amazing person and she's enhanced my experience in London ten-fold! If you're going to go to London, pick CEA, they'll take good care of you! They make it so easy to feel comfortable in a new environment, if it wasn't for CEA showing me tons of new things, I wouldn't have had such an amazing experience!

    Dublin!
    05/16/2016

    Dublin, Ireland was the best experience I have had so far in my college career. From the amazing faculty and staff in the States and abroad, to the culture that I was able to immerse myself in for four months, to all of the traveling I was able to do and all of the people I had the opportunity of meeting. While the housing arrangements were not ideal (Dublin has a housing crisis and our apartments were not the greatest-- #ArchwayCourtForever), the experience was so incredibly worth it. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone looking to study abroad. I participated in the service learning program in Dublin and worked with elementary school aged kids in an after school program. Dublin, Ireland has my heart and I will be back not soon enough.

    How could this program be improved?

    The housing situation, though it is very difficult to find housing in Dublin. At times it seemed like all of our professors gave us presentations/papers/projects at the exact same time. I think for the students' sake, the assignments should be more spread out.
