This January, I had the opportunity of a lifetime and got to study abroad in New Zealand through CIS Abroad. I always knew I wanted to study abroad, but it was an overwhelming thought with all of the options of places to go, figuring out how to make it
work with my university and all the little details in between. CIS Abroad helped make the entire process smooth and enjoyable. I had an advisor the whole way through who helped me make sure I was as ready as possible for my trip abroad. Once I was there, I had the most amazing 2 months of my life. I created life long friendships, got to see the most spectacular views and most of all I got to experience a different culture and truly appreciate what they had to offer. I highly encourage everyone to study abroad!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
