Studying abroad with Center for Global Education's Southern Africa program was one of the best decisions I made in my undergraduate career. Through CGE's thorough and dynamic planning, I was able to explore new corners, given a community of like-minded individuals to share all of my adventures with, and shown a glimpse into the lives of the local people, both their struggles and victories. I was afforded a well rounded and stimulating immersion experience. Overall, I felt very safe despite the unfamiliarity of the city.

After a slow start to the new millennium, the Middle East took off as a study abroad destination. Although still just 3% of global study abroad, student numbers grew nearly fivefold from 2002 to 2010. Middle East study abroad is highly variable due to its unstable geopolitical cl...
That countdown app is finally flashing a zero. After months and months of planning and years and years of dreaming, the day is finally here. You're waving (perhaps teary) good-byes to Mom and Dad at customs, passport confidently in hand, 4 months of supplies rolling steadily behi...
