What Our Students are Saying
"Studying abroad has proved to be one of the most valuable and rewarding experiences I've had. I learned so much about myself not only from being independent in a different country, but also because of the people and opportunities I had a chance to immerse myself in. I would do it all over again a million times if I could!"
Austyn T.University of San Diego
"Studying abroad through ISA was an unbelievable experience, providing me with the cultural knowledge to acclimate to my physical and social environment allowing me to feel comfortable and make friends with ease. With the excursions, I got to do some things that I would not have had the opportunity or learned about otherwise."
Erin B.Elizabethtown College
"I loved my experience abroad in Australia. The smells, sites, and people I have met really opened my eyes and allowed me to gain many new perspectives. I have really been pushed out of my comfort zone, but that has really benefited me. I am now more confident I can adapt to any situation I am faced. The people I have met and the experiences I have had have been amazing and indescribable. They will forever shape me in the direction I choose to take into the future." Samantha P."

"To anyone who is thinking of possibly studying abroad, do it. Don't hesitate. You will learn more about yourself than any normal university can teach. It is an opportunity to see amazing new places, meet the best friends of your life and if you have time left maybe even learn something in class. I would do it again in a heartbeat."
