I was in Manipal from January 2014 to May 2014 and I loved every minute of it! I made some of my best friends while I was there, many of whom I still keep in touch with on a daily basis. I created incredibly strong connections to the people I encountered and the language as well. I spent an extra month in India after the program ended, and everyone within the Alliance staff was extremely helpful in planning this with me. The classes are similar, if not better than my courses in the U.S. and I never really had a moment of wishing I could go home. I have plans already to return and stay with the friends I made at Manipal. It was really the greatest experience!
