- Best Summer EVER!09/12/18
I looked out my window and saw green fields to my left and right, then the city came into view. Quaint and beautiful just like I had pictured. I was in Amsterdam! Butterflies filled my stomach as I thought about the adventure I was about to embark on.
I knew I was going to have an incredible summer, but I don't think I ever realized the absolutely amazing people I was going to meet and become lifelong friends with. I think there is something truly remarkable about Forum Nexus and the friendships that are created within the program. I have never felt so comfortable around a group of strangers so fast, especially when everything around you is new. I look back at my summer now and it feels like the most amazing dream anyone could ever have. I genuinely have never been so thankful to have had the opportunity to embark on adventure like Forum Nexus. I am so happy and I know the Forum Nexus family will be one I can count on for the rest of my life. There is already a reunion trip in the works with a bunch of friends and I :)read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Forum-Nexus gave me the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone. It's a amazing way to get to know new people, and travel while increasing your education. They offer great courses, and guide you every step of the way until you arrive to your destination.
The staff and professors are amazing! They will make sure that you have everything you need to make your experience the best it can be. Many people asked me how my summer went with Forum-Nexus, and all I can say is "Best experience I've ever had!". It was great to be able to take courses and then take off on new adventures in the afternoons. I had never been to Europe before this, and going with Forum Nexus was a great way to experience it for the first time. I took a course on Cultural Intelligence, and I can honestly say that I this course was truly enlightening.

- Best decision I have ever made!01/25/18
Forum-Nexus was the best decision I have ever made. This program is so unique in that there is something for everyone. There are courses available for all majors, and there are destinations that will captivate everyone’s tastes. Whether you are a lover
of the busy city streets or a quiet small town in the mountains, you will see it all. I gained so much international experience as well as such an appreciation for cultural differences. The classes were interesting, relevant, and put me ahead on my track to graduation. The staff members are so intelligent, fun, and help make you feel safe / comfortable transitioning into an international setting. There is so much time to balance social activities with studies. I was able to explore the night life in each town, go on independent excursions, and bond with other students in the program. I left this trip with an entire new network of best friends (many of which I still keep in daily contact with) and I feel more excited than ever to continue traveling and expanding my cultural intelligence. There are scholarships available so take advantage of them and go abroad with Forum Nexus! You will not regret it.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- This is Forum-Nexus!!09/25/17
I had the time of my life studying abroad for 5 weeks with Forum-Nexus! We toured to so many iconic destinations, historical landmarks and beautiful countries in such a short period of time. There was always something to do and see every day, and there
was never a dull moment during the entire trip. The staff and Hugo were full of infectious energy all the time and they were incredibly helpful with everything leading up to and throughout the program. The entire program was very organized and safe, and overall very well put together. Forum-Nexus offers something for everyone interested. The classes were all extremely interesting and relevant, and the professors were very engaged. What you learn in the classroom carries into where you’re touring that day and the professional and cultural visits were all incredible and a unique aspect to Forum-Nexus. I met some of the best people on this trip and I had so much fun every single day. This program is truly one of a kind and it was absolutely amazing.

- The PERFECT study abroad!09/04/17
Forum-Nexus offers so many amazing opportunities for people who want to see the world and make new best friends! It works for people who have a picky check-list of things they want in a study abroad program: 5 weeks of the summer, traveling all throughout
Europe, with a great group of students from all over who want to meet new people and see new things. The main cities in the program are excellently chosen because they are so unique and provide so much balance. You get to see big busy cities, fun laid-back cities, and even small hidden-gem cities and towns. The classes are fun and super informative across every city you visit, and you get to walk outside the hotel and see everything you've always heard of. Then you get professional visits that really show you how people work in different cities, and there are cultural tours to show you how people live and what's important where you go. Forum-Nexus is also the perfect blend of structure and flexibility, so you can follow the group for activities or go on your own for the weekends to see entirely new countries! You get to really cater the experience to what YOU want, and Forum-Nexus is there to ensure you get the most out of it! In my travels with Forum-Nexus, I gained so many new skills for adapting to new environments and relating to people from different cultures. Forum-Nexus is perfect because it's fun but you grow so much as a person, and it opens up your world so much! I feel so connected to the world from traveling, meeting people, seeing landmarks, learning about the history and culture and technology, and loving every second of it with Forum-Nexus. Forum-Nexus works because it's so great that it pulls in amazing and dedicated staff and students. In just a few words, Forum-Nexus is: dynamic, adventurous, quality, family.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- Best Decision I Ever Made08/28/17
My experience with Forum Nexus was unlike anything I have ever done and unlike anything I will ever do! I got first hand experience in learning European history, culture and values! I got pushed to learn my own cultural background and was embraced and
loved for being my own self! I got to learn more about myself and more about appreciating people who are different that I am. The travel was incredible as well. We got to travel to Barcelona, Chamonix, Nimes, Paris, Milan, Lugano, Geneva, Rome, Santorini and Rhodes all in five weeks. I receive eight credits that counted towards my degree and hours for my hospitality internship. I felt safe traveling with Forum Nexus and worry free. The staff is caring, loving and fun! It is the best combination of a learning environment while still having the independence to discover parts of Europe that you've always dreamed of experiencing.

- Forum Nexus is Awesome!!!!08/27/17
You know how you hear people say something is a "life changing experience"? I personally never really believed that whenever I heard it. There is no way something is that good that you know it will change your life. I was wrong. After becoming both a
Student Assistant and a Student for the program this year, I can wholeheartedly say that this is one of those programs that will definitely change your life. I always thought that I would end up somewhere in New York because that is where I am from, but after this program, I know that is most definitely not where I will end up. This is so because the program really has the students integrated with how an actual European would live if they were traveling all of Europe. We took the subway in Paris to class, we walked the same streets any local would, we learned more about the European Union than any typical United States citizen would know, and more. The constant traveling was also a huge benefit. It is very typical for a Spaniard to simply go to France for the weekend with a bunch of their friends or for an Italian to visit Switzerland. Everyone in Europe travels and that is what we experienced. Because of this program, I know for a fact I want more of that. I see myself traveling just like any other typical European on the weekends, and then going back to work during the weekdays. There would be no other way for me to know that if I did not participate in this program. I cannot regard this program any higher in the form of words because a lot of what we experienced was indescribable. You have to at least consider it!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My summer with Forum Nexus has definitely been one of the best decisions I’ve made. Not only was I able to travel through countries I have always dreamt of visiting, but I have also formed amazing friendships, learned more about myself, and through

When I came into this program, I did not know anyone and definitely pushed myself outside of my comfort zone. Being a Student Assistant also helped me to feel a little more connected and involved. I am so grateful for all of the opportunities that we had on this trip, and I would recommend it to every one! Whether you’re shy, outgoing, introverted or extroverted—this is a trip that will change your perspective on the world.

because the program goes through multiple countries, you can visit a lot of different cities (or stay in one place and dig a little deeper, as I did!).

Forum Nexus exceeded any and all expectations I had for an incredible summer. I went on Forum Nexus the summer of 2016, and have never been so grateful for an experience. Throughout the program, you get to explore many different countries, cultures, landscapes,
foods, and people. Thanks to a moving campus, in four weeks you get to experience so much of Europe, and so fully! No one destination can be compared to the next, and everywhere we went on this trip was incredible. There are tons of classes offered, and everyone on the trip really got to connect with our professors and the subject matter. With plenty of free time after class, you get to enjoy the places you are! I was nervous before I went that I would not feel super connected with any one place because we moved so often, but that was not the case. I felt I connected with every place I went, and had enough time to see the history, culture, and landmarks. The program itself is also international, and I got to study alongside students from all over the world while being taught by professors from all over the world in classrooms all over the world-amazing. The man in charge of it all, Hugo, is so passionate and makes the program what it is. For over 25 years, he has been leading study abroad programs like this throughout Europe. He is so knowledgeable about the places we go, and really makes an effort for everyone to understand the culture of the area we are. Every country visit is preceded by a culture lecture, where we talk about language, religion, food, customs, and etiquette. It was an amazing way to see the world. I made some of my best friends on this trip, and still think everyday of the amazing times I had. From hiking in the French Alps, to riding a gondola in Venice, to visiting the Sagrada Familia, and lounging on the Greek Island of Rhodes, FN does it all.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

If you're looking for a summer with unforgettable views, friends, food, and experiences Forum Nexus is just what you're looking for. I've always had a dream to go abroad, but was afraid I couldn't do it because of the commitment to leave for a whole semester.
This summer program was the perfect alternative. I got to see most of Europe in a month. It was just enough, but not too long.

Studying abroad has been something I felt like I needed to do in order to truly complete my college experience. The hardest part of trying to decide where to study abroad is that you think you have to pick only once place, and that you’ll have to spend
a whole semester in that one location. With the Forum Nexus program, you can do so much more. Forum Nexus gives you the ability to see and study in 5 different countries in just over a month. This program instantly appealed to me because I would be able to see and learn about so much of Europe, rather than just one city or country. I have to admit; it almost seems too good to be true when reading about the program. However, I can attest first-hand the program is everything it promises to be and so much more. The other students as well as the staff are some of the most amazing people you will ever meet in your life, and traveling and learning together with them will create an experience that you will take with you for the rest of your life. This program taught me so much, both in the classroom and out of it, and I recommend it to all of my friends who are interested in studying abroad.

I came into this program not knowing anyone, I was nervous travelling Europe with a bunch of people I did not know. I became a Student Assistant in order to help put myself out there more. Once I landed in Barcelona, all of my nervousness went away. The
staff members were very friendly and took me in as family right away. It was amazing how everyone in the program became so close so fast. Originally, I wasn't suppose to stay for the full program, but as the days went on and I became closer to everyone I switched my plans and decided to stay the entire time. I really like how the program didn't restrict you to visiting the cities that were only on their agenda, they allowed weekend trips for the students to travel wherever they pleased. The program was a very well organized, staff provided you with weekly schedules whenever you arrived into a new city. Also, they updated the students as quickly as possible whenever there was a change in schedule. Overall, I was able to learn a lot more about myself and the world around me.

This past summer I decided to study abroad after my freshman year of college. I was traveling alone and I was a little bit nervous to be in Europe for the first time all by myself. When I first met everyone from Forum Nexus, all my worries instantly went
away. I've never met a more welcoming, friendly, and fun group of people. Age or where we came from did not matter. In one month I did as much as possible between interesting classes, professional visits, and sightseeing. I really enjoyed going to classes because we learned so much useful information that will stick with me forever. I couldn't believe how fast everyone became not only friends, but family. I left Greece with so many experiences, a different outlook on life, and 4 college credits.

Attending the Forum Nexus program this summer was the best decision that I made. You get to travel different European cities along with taking classes at renowned universities. Especially for the students who didn't get the chance to study abroad, Forum-Nexus
is the best program for them. I got a chance to explore the European culture and the traditions which people follow in different countries. Apart from that I got a chance to interact with students coming from all over the world sharing different ideas and having different perspectives. The classes which we take are not at all boring and stressful. This is because of the experienced faculties who also travel with us throughout the program. Along with studying throughout the weekend I took many Forum-Nexus organised day trips and weekend excursions to different cities. The staff members are so friendly and are always ready to help. The director of the program, Dr. Hugo, is such a fun loving person that you don't even feel that you are on a educational trip. I highly recommend this program to everyone who didn’t get the chance of studying abroad.

Spending my summer with forum-nexus was more than I ever could have dreamed of, honestly. The opportunities that came during and after the trip are seemingly endless. While on this trip, I gained lifelong friends from all around the world who I still
talk to weekly and visit. There is nothing like getting connected with businesses and corporations from all over the world and getting to see the inside scoop, which is something unique Forum Nexus has to offer. Traveling from city to city made it never boring, to say the least. I learned such an immense amount in such a short period of time--and not just about my major, but life skills in linguistics, cultural communication, and attitudes toward trying new things. The professors make the classes on this trip fun because they are so personable, knowledgeable, helpful, and fun. The classes go along with the countries that we visit, so it is all very relevant and interesting. The environment of our group on the trip was like nothing else I had ever experienced. The trip gave me a close-knit group of diverse people, something which is difficult to find anywhere.

- A Summer for the Books.11/09/15
Honestly, this was one of the most fun and most educational summers ever. Forum Nexus is amazing because you get to travel through so many different cities and experience all the different kinds of amazing food. Hugo, I mean DJ Hugo, is an awesome program
director and wants everyone to really experience the culture in each city and improve your international IQ. The best part about this program was we had the opportunity to go on weekend trips so we could see even more of Europe. If there were ever any probems, staff was around to help. I made friends for a lifetime that live across the world and that I still keep in contact with. This month long experience was one for the books.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

- A summer I will remember forever09/07/13
Studying abroad with Forum Nexus has been a life changing experience. This past summer I was able to take a cross- cultural sociology class that counted towards my sociology degree, while studying abroad in Europe. Forum Nexus offers many different courses
to choose from. All of the professors were terrific; each one cared about the students and has a passion for teaching. Going to class was fun and enjoyable. Whether it was banana boat riding in the Greek islands to walking around Parc Guell in Barcelona to taking a gondola ride up to the top of Mount Blanc in France. I can say I left Europe with no regrets, new friendships and memories that I will cherish forever.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
