"My friends and family both pushed me hard to go to London and told me it’s a life changing experience I’ll never forget. When I arrived at my flat I slept all day and was horrified to walk the streets by myself, I honestly wanted to leave the first day I arrived, in fear I wouldn’t meet any one. That night I met my roommate and became instant friends. I met so many people who have all changed my life and will deeply miss them. I will never forget this Summer, I will never forget those who I’ve met over here. Thank you for making London 2012 the most unforgettable summer of my life time."
" I am having a great time in Seville. There are about 10 students in my spanish class from all over, so it's fun to work in pairs or groups and get to know the other students. There are activities to help guide the discussions, and they are all really fun! The teachers are very helpful, and I learn new expressions and vocabulary every day. Seville is big and beautiful! The Guadalquivir River divides it into 2, and there is a great path along the river to watch rowers and kayakers, sunbathe, or run. Almost everything is within walking distance, but there is also a bus system. The people are very nice and friendly!

Throughout the three months, not only did we learn Italian, together my new friends and I became more aware of Florentine everyday life, as well as American culture! The journeys I made and the memories I have made me a more open-minded individual. I came back to America with a whole new perspective on Europe, Italy, Italians, culture and people in general. I wouldn't change one thing and I recommend that everyone takes advantage of this wonderful opportunity."
