Study Abroad Testimonials

Spring Semester in London 2010 – “Spending the semester in London was the most awesome experience of my life. From the minute I arrived and was surrounded by English accents, I was incredibly happy. Being away from home for so long made me more independent and it helped me discover a new confidence and belief in myself. London is an amazing city with so many different things to do and see. Going to shows in the West End, shopping at Camden Market and riding the London Eye are some of my best memories. I was also lucky to make great friends while I was there. Studying abroad for a whole semester allowed me to really get a feel for what it is like living in London. I am so thankful to have had this experience and would recommend everyone who can to study abroad.” – Jaime Sepulveda
