FN Summer!

Forum-Nexus was a great, cultural experience for me! I had traveled to Europe two years before this program and actually wasn't a big fan! I thought the U.S. was the only place for me, and I didn't want to leave for at least a decade. But when a less-than-busy summer and this opportunity came up, I thought I would give Europe another try. And I am so glad I did!!! Traveling around Europe with students your own age and in the same part of life as you is an experience that most people never get to have. The chance to see so much of Europe in one month with friends that become your family after a few short days is one that I would never pass up. There is so much independence in this program that after class in the mornings, you get to do whatever your heart desires! Figuring out the subway stations, finding authentic places to eat, booking weekend trips with your friends, and stumbling across famous landmarks are all part of the experience. I feel so much more confident in my ability to travel by myself after having so much independence with this program. It's intimidating at first, but just jump in and do it! You never know when you'll get an opportunity like this again.

How can this program be improved?
More planning would be very beneficial for this program. I felt like people didn't know what was going on a lot of the time, and I would have liked to make a little more efficient use of my time. Everyone was very laid back, and I think we should have had at least one advisor that was able to run a tight ship and keep things moving smoothly.

A Fun-Packed Month!

Forum-Nexus delivered even more than I had ever hoped for in a study abroad! Although I took two classes in addition to the International IQ class, I still had plenty of time to explore all of the amazing cities that we stopped in. And not to mention all of the incredible friends that I met from all around the world! I don't think that I could have spent one month of my summer in a better way if I tried. I have recommended(and will continue to recommend) this program to everyone that I meet that is looking to learn about the world and make life-long friends!

How can this program be improved?
I would love to see a Fall or Winter option to this program as well!

Amazing summer abroad!

I had an awesome time abroad with Forum-Nexus! I made a lot of new friends and saw some interesting places. When looking for a program, I was mainly concerned with finding one that offered Graduate credit, since I had just started my graduate program and never had the chance to study abroad before. I also wanted a program that wasn't too long since I could not be away from home for too long, but was also long enough to see enough places. I enjoyed the multiple countries, and definitely liked the professional visits that we had through the program.

A Trip to Remember

If you have never stepped a foot outside your home country and want to immerse yourself in new innovative cultures, then this is the program for you. The educational aspects perfectly link up with your travel experiences, as you attend classes in the morning, and are free to explore the cities in the afternoon. You will gain a lifetime's worth of experiences and memories that will carry on for years to come. For those of you who are early networkers, all of the students come from across the globe, meaning you will be able to have and maintain several international connections.
You won't be disappointed if you choose this program!

Amazing Summer

This program was fun, exciting, adventurous, and exhausting. The staff and courses offered provided great insight to business abroad, cross cultural communications, and basic European geography. Every day was a new adventure in what felt like a new city. There is never a dull moment with the excitement of each city as well as the great people participating on the program.

So amazing I'm going back!

Traveling with a group of strangers, who soon become family in unfamiliar countries, helped open my eyes to a completely different world. Forum Nexus ties in all the right components to a study abroad program. The program met all my expectations and more. I can honestly say I had an overall amazing time. I was exposed to real world experiences in my field of study while being able to travel and enjoy each cities landmarks and night-life.

How can this program be improved?
There are no major modifications that I would suggest, that's how great the program is.

Forum-Nexus; the best summer adventure of my life!

In one month I was able to travel to Spain, France, Switzerland, Italy, and Greece. I ate delicious food, made lots of friends, learned about cultures, went on adventures daily, explored cities, and made memories to last a life time!

An amazing experience I would not change for anything else!

I had always wanted to study abroad during college. I had never been out of the United States and so the summer before my junior year I decided I wanted to go abroad. I found Forum-Nexus through my Study Abroad Advisor and fell in love with what the program had to offer me! The program travels all over Europe in one month, and one of the stops was Greece, which was my one and only pre-requisite for picking my program. I am Greek and before Forum-Nexus I had never been. This program's students and staff became a family for me and my time abroad is something I will always cherish.

How can this program be improved?
I would like the professional visits to become more applicable to all the students, although many of them were very enjoyable!

The trip of a life time.

I honestly had the best time of my life during this program. Usually I am the type of the person that would find a flaw in almost everything but for some reason Forum Nexus was just PERFECT.
I would do it again if I could and I already recommended it to my friends and sister.

I love you FN!

Forum-Nexus gets a 10/10 overall!

From the beginning to the end, Forum-Nexus as a program offered and followed through with every detail a study abroad program should. The website is laid out informatively, the support staff is genuinely interested in your participation, the first day of orientation is all-encompassing with cultural logistics, weekends are left free for students to tour the cities, classes are held casually yet there are enough professional visits to get you a feel for the real business lifestyle, the hotels are comfortable and located in serious vacation spots, and the closing ceremony is intimate as well as serves delicious international food. The best thing about Forum-Nexus is that it caters to the global student; we travel with people from all over the earth and Dr. Hugo's international IQ component really pushes us to become a citizen of the world. I never had any difficulties traveling around Europe or completing schoolwork. Since the interns and professors travel with us, any and every question you may have is easily answered by a very friendly staff. Not to mention how simple the credit transfer is from one of the European universities back to your home institution. I definitely give it a 10/10!

How can this program be improved?
If Forum-Nexus were to change one thing it would be enforcing the baggage size maximum. On the website it states that if your luggage is heavier/larger than the dimensions listed, the student will pay a fee. I took this seriously and decided to backpack across Europe. However, there was a certain student who clearly disregarded the statement and brought this huge bag. It was fine for flights, but when we traveled as a group in the coach buses my small bag was squeezed into the seat next to me since the baggage area was overcrowded. This was a tad inconvenient for someone who follows the rules.

Amazing Program by Tiffany

Forum Nexus has a special place in my heart. Throughout the summer I travelled to countries I only dreamt of visiting. The professors were very knowledgeable and kept you engaged. We had fun while learning, the program director Hugo was amazing, he encourages you to fully embrace in a new cultural and enjoy life. The workload was very bearable, you will always have time to do your schoolwork and make time for touring the city. I will cherish my friends and my experience over the summer. Forum Nexus is an amazing program and I would recommend it to everyone I know.

How can this program be improved?
The only thing I would change is , I would prefer if we wouldn't travel the days that we have a professional visit.

The most unforgetable summer

Studying abroad with Forum Nexus has been an incredible experience. This past summer I was able to take a cross- cultural sociology class that counted towards my sociology degree, while studying abroad in Europe. Whether it was banana boat riding in the Greek islands to walking around park Guell in Barcelona to taking a gondola ride up to the top of Mount Blanc in France. I can say I left Europe with no regrets, new friendships and memories that I will cherish forever.
