"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
“This experience was a defining moment in my life, and I will forever be grateful for it. The purpose of the research experience was to make connections and learn how to carry out a research project, but I left with so much more. I encourage anyone, in any discipline to work hard and to apply to this program in future sessions.”
~ Kirsten Hein, Summer 2017 Cádiz, Spain, Biology Major
"My time researching abroad in Spain was an unforgettable experience. Living in such a beautiful country was amazing, and I learned so much from their culture and way of life."
~ Alex Schwartz, Summer 2017 Cádiz, Spain, Biodiversity, Conservation, and Natural Resources Major
"I would not be the person I am today without studying abroad. I met my best friends abroad and wouldn’t change anything about it. If you have the chance to study abroad, DO IT!"
~ Daniel Smith, Summer 2017 Athens, Greece, Computer Science - Information Security & Assurance Major
"I would not trade my experience participating in research abroad in Cádiz, Spain for anything! There were definitely challenges, but I truly believe I grew as an academic and a person. I think if students have the opportunity and ability to get outside their comfort zone and go abroad for any length of time they absolutely should. My trip to Spain was my 3rd experience abroad and every time I learn something new, both about the culture I’m experiencing and about myself."
