- The Dream Come True09/22/16
I spent 3 1/2 months studying in the Czech Republic last spring semester and I can most definitely say that it was the best experience of my life so far. While going through the process of applying, I had so much additional help on campus and through
the CIS providers. They helped me see the dream I was accomplishing and excited me even more than I thought possible for this. My on site coordinator as well was phenomenal and helped me with anything whether meniscal or large. This experience was something that has changed my life for the better and I can truly say that going abroad with CIS was something I'll always be proud about. Thank you CIS!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- Prague was just the beginning...01/13/15
I'm going to start by stating the cliche, studying in Prague was absolutely life-changing. As many times as it's been said, it holds true. Every aspect of my semester abroad brought me the greatest happiness and satisfaction. Aside from the classes -
which were especially relevant to my home university studies - there was so much to take in. The culture in Prague is easy to adjust to, but dissimilar enough to force you to keep an open mind. My life in Europe taught me so many things. I stepped out of my comfort zone and broadened my horizons into a new land with 100% new people and sights. Prague is such an understated city that happens to hold some of the world's greatest beauties. I was able to learn a basic amount of the Czech language which has enabled me to pick Slovak languages out of a crowd of foreigners. I am no longer nervous to enter new places and need to speak to new people for the first time. I feel confident to start a conversation with all sorts of people, even those who in the past I may have considered too different to speak with. Living in another country has really taught me how similar we all are as humans, no matter how many cultural barriers exist between us all.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
