"Elizabeth Salzberg was an incredible Resident Director. She exceeded my expectations and made me feel at home in a country I have never been to. Her advice and knowledge of the university and country overall was incredibly helpful and I feel that my experience was the best it could be because of her."

"ISA made my study abroad experience a home away from home."
Jody S. University of Nebraska, Lincoln
"Expect the unexpected. That's the best advice I can give anyone who's studying abroad. Sometimes when unplanned things happen and you're forced to adapt to a new environment, just stay positive. From any situation, you'll grow and eventually learn from it. ISA has been a great help throughout my journey abroad and I am so glad to have gone with them. One of my roommates didn't go with an agency and missed out on some great friends and excursions."
Lotus T.Chapman University
"Studying abroad was the best decision I've made thus far in my life. I had so many amazing experiences and gained so many friends that I will never forget...Even though I only spent 5 months there, I feel like it had an incredible influence on my mindset and view of life. I learned so much about myself. I would highly recommend studying abroad to everyone."
Morgan S.University of Wisconsin - La Crosse
"If students have the opportunity to study abroad, they should definitely take advantage of it. Studying abroad was a life changing experience, and I have no regrets. I grew as a person, become more culturally knowledgeable, made incredible relationships with awesome people, and made lifetime memories that I can tell my kid's kids one day."
