Student Testimonials

"I had the privilege of studying abroad in Prague, Czech Republic for five weeks with CIS abroad program. Prague was the perfect place to immerse yourself and get to experience a different culture as well as a great location to anyone who has the wanderlust of traveling all over the place. Prague was absolutely stunning with its beautiful architecture, cobblestone walkways and many bridges. It offered that "old time" feeling of your ideal quaint European city. I was not only able to complete 9 hours of credit but also travel to 7 other countries during my time. Coming back, I feel more independent than ever with a greater outlook on the world and myself." 

~ Michaela Leaf, Summer 2017 Prague, Czech Republic, Marketing Major
