What People are Saying

  • I’ve had such a blast immersing myself in the Aussie culture: learning the slang, trying new foods, and doing activities I’d never done, from snorkeling and surfing on New Year’s Day to sleeping under the stars in the Outback.

  • Valparaíso has taught me important life lessons. It has taught me to be more independent, and to trust my instincts and the people around me, even with a language barrier. I am so thankful for this opportunity.

    Kolby L., High School Abroad Programs Alumnus
  • One of my goals before I came to Germany was to get outside and do more. I’m always seeing and doing new things here, whether it’s going for bike rides, rollerblading, or baking. I love it.
