Safety was always a bit of a problem. We were staying the dorms and there was a guard outside the dorm 24/7, but our rooms were broken into multiple times. By the end of the semester almost everyone had had something stolen.

I would focus a little bit more on the hands-on Community Development experience. There was lots of theory, but not as much real volunteer experience.

I would've liked to learn more Arabic while studying there. Even though my classes encouraged intensive language, I feel I would have learned about the language through a more intimate setting if CIEE had encouraged everyone to participate in Arabic practice groups.
