    Fantastic Experience Would Do It Again!!!
    03/22/2015

    This program was the best!!! The excursions the program planned were fantastic, the people were fantastic and extremely helpful, and the area was beautiful! I am so happy to have chosen to go on a study abroad with this program, I cannot say enough good things about this program!! The only thing is that I wish I could have spent more than just a summer session with this program.

    How could this program be improved?

    In the Madrid field study the breakfast that was provided was not that great and could have been better because that was the only meal that was provided.

    Simplicity at its Best
    03/09/2015

    It's a fantastic program for students who just want to go abroad and do their own thing. It helps fill all basic necessities to get abroad and get credit without any of the unnecessary add-ons like cell phones, an outing every weekend, etc. The USAC staff in Ireland were very attentive in meeting our needs and making sure they were there to support us. This is perhaps most important to have while abroad and I am very grateful for that. This program was the best for me because it was the cheapest, they met all of my basic needs that are complicated to sort our alone, and gave me a great deal of independence in my study abroad experience.

    How could this program be improved?

    My biggest concern was housing - USAC did not help with housing much, but relied on UCC to provide us with details and links to apply for housing during our stay. I would have much more preferred a little guidance and aid in securing a home for the semester.

    The Best City On Earth!
    02/11/2015

    My expectations with USAC-Prague were blown out of the water! The staff and teachers are great. There was a week excursion offered before classes, and it was the best $400 I have ever spent! It took you to 3 countries, and a small town in southern Czech Republic. The excursions during the program were also great. The living accommodations are amazing. I was lucky enough to have my own room at the apartment I was at, but that was not the case at the other location. Overall, if you are looking for a cheaper program that still has all the frills, and a different place to go, this is the program for you. And Prague is an unreal city. Very cheap, so your money will go far.

    How could this program be improved?

    The classes aren't actually at Charles University. I don't actually think I went to Charles University while I was there. Other than that, there is nothing to complain about.

    Looking for something?
    02/06/2015

    Open-minded people. Spirituality. A family. A new career outlook. Perhaps your old self. France, like many other countries, is a pathway that will lead you to places you never thought could be so beautiful had you not decided to take them.
    Everyday is something new. In France, a day in the life for me was so much more than the smells of warm chocolate croissants coming from the patisseries, or the rain splashing down on my umbrella. It was learning about myself through the struggles of language barriers, to the unfortunate forgetfulness of my boarding pass, to the talks about life with local taxi drivers at 2am. You will never be able to limit what you are looking for if you decide to embark the path of studying abroad, because they will undoubtedly find you, and prove you wrong in all of the best ways imaginable.

    Before studying abroad, I had never left the United States. Going to Europe absolutely changed my life. I made many new friends, went on adventures every single day, and was faced with small challenges in my everyday life. I was immersed in an entirely new culture and I experienced things that some people will never experience in a lifetime. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who is considering studying abroad.

    How could this program be improved?

    There should be more opportunities to mingle with the locals as the Americans tend to stick together.
