- Overall Decent08/14/19
I spent my spring 2019 semester abroad in Vienna Austria with IES. I would say that my time abroad was mostly good. I had some difficulties making friends and integrating with the culture but the program had a lot of support for me and the classes were
decent. I found myself enjoying the local food. Art, music and language a lot while abroad. I came out of this feeling more understanding of myself but also with a lot more questions about who I am unanswered. Time will tell me those answers but in the meantime it's good to at least have those questions on the forefront I suppose. Overall I would recommend this program. Fun but with the occasional difficultyread moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
