Doorway to Fantasy: London 2013/2014

10/10

This study abroad program changed my life forever. We visited places such as Stonehenge, Hampton Court, and Westminster Abbey. I learned about a different culture and the literature that came from it.

How can this program be improved?

It was amazing being able to go to so many famous places in England. However, I feel like we got to experience the real London when we were allowed to go out by ourselves in the evenings. For example, my friends and I found a New Year's Eve party, located in a World War II bunker, that was entirely 1940s themed. It looked as if we had stumbled upon a movie set. All throughout the night, we were surrounded by Londoners. For the first time during my trip, I no longer felt like a tourist. I was amongst people who lived there and I fully immersed myself in the culture. I believe that this program would improve by finding one or two, non-touristy, events to go to. Other than that, the trip was pretty much perfect.

Belize is Fantastic!

10/10

We stayed in very rustic conditions and the course was very challeging physically. We hiked through the jungle, we swam through caves, we snorkeled a lot. It was hard but it the way that challenges you enough to show you how much you are capable of. Take at least a liter water bottle, probably two and good hiking shoes/boots. The terrain is nothing like you have ever seen before. The food is very simple but simple things like fruit or baked goods have a lot more flavor there. The people are some of the friendliest I have ever met. They can be shy, but they want to meet you and want to share their culture with you, so talk to them. We did a home visit that was fascinating. My outlook on the definition of poverty, American culture, and myself were all profoundly transformed. I would not only go again, I have gone again!

Earn school credit in Australia over winter break

10/10

I always knew I wanted to go to study abroad but I wanted to ease myself in slowly. When I found a 2-week winter break program to Australia, I immediately signed up! During this travel study, my group of fellow students, along with our professor, traveled to the Daintree Rainforest, Cairns and Sydney. In each place, we were able to have class and then take part in hands-on assignments. My favorite was during our time in the Great Barrier Reef where our snorkeling adventures were part of a class assignment to identify fish and other marine life. I recommend this experience to anyone who wants to do a shorter study abroad or who does not want to miss an entire term of school.
