Amazing time in Turkey

The university campus on which we stayed was beautiful and well kept. Downtown Istanbul was breathtaking. The mixture of cultures and backgrounds made my time in Turkey incredibly fun and enriching. The three weekend trips which were included allowed for one to truly grasp the Turkish culture and lifestyle. The professors and guides were both informative and enjoyable to be around. My only complaint with this trip is the fact that it had to end!

One of the most amazing experiences of my life

This was truly one of the best things I have ever done. The program was absolutely phenomenal, we got to travel all over the country and see so much. The coordinators made sure we tried local dishes and had a genuine experiences everywhere we went. I wish I could go back and do it all over again without changing a single thing.

study abroad with FSU!!!

This program is easily one of the best offered by FSU International Programs! Students are housed and attend school at a highly acclaimed Turkish university, Koç Üniversitesi, just outside of Istanbul's city center. This gives you the opportunity to mingle with Turkish students and have easy access to the city. The classes are compelling and the professors are outstanding. The program also takes you on three incredible weekend excursions to Ephesus, Cappadocia and Mardin. This experience definitely gave me a new perspective on our shrinking world. This experience exposed me to a culture very unlike my own and opened my mind while providing me with the most exciting and fascinating experience of my life.
