The Reach Study Abroad Experience
Beyond my expectations
Not everything is perfect, but this trip (summer 2014) was as perfect as can possibly be… Beyond my expectations. Everything- the food, the people, the places, the experience, my story.
I loved it
It’s been something I know is going to stay with me for the rest of my life… I loved it, and have no regrets!
Once in a lifetime
This was a once in a lifetime experience, and I would go again in a heartbeat – the best summer of my life!
The program was life-changing; a great opportunity to learn, grow as an individual and experience new cultures
An amazing experience
It was an amazing experience to travel and make new friends. I learned so much about myself and about other people. I would suggest this trip to absolutely everyone!
Absolutely blown away
Reach Study Abroad has been amazing and I’m absolutely blown away with how much fun this trip has been! If I could stay here forever, I would!
The staff were amazing
The staff were amazing. They helped us all out and were very kind to people who needed it. Some of the best times were hanging out with the staff.
The staff were amazing and extremely helpful whenever we needed them. They went above and beyond what they needed to do for us!
Made me feel at home
The Reach team were so friendly, sweet and considerate and really made me feel at home here
As a school we have developed a very close relationship with Reach. They are extremely supportive of groups and students. I cannot think of a better program.
Can’t thank Reach enough
Developing a program like this has been a dream of mine since graduate school. I can’t thank Reach enough for making it a reality. The impact on students has been amazing – far beyond what I was anticipating.
So much fun
This trip wouldn’t have been the same without the Reach Staff. They made this trip so much fun and still knew how to be professional.
Best Memories of Cambridge
It was exciting
Many of my best memories consist of just wandering around Cambridge on my own or with a few others. I think that one of my most cherished would have to be the punting journey to Grantchester Meadows… it was exciting and I valued the sore muscles I had afterwards!
I don’t think I could pick just one. The whole trip was incredibly memorable; everything from the places and things I saw, to the people I met. I’m still good friends with people I met on the trip.
Out of my comfort zone
Just being able to call Cambridge home for five weeks was amazing. I loved being able to travel independently and getting out of my comfort zone.
Side travels with friends
Using public transportation, side travels with friends, going to the pubs with my friends and professor, living in the dorms…
Enjoyed the volleyball
I very much enjoyed the volleyball games that involved almost everyone on the trip and went on almost daily, and allowed the students the ability to bond with people we perhaps wouldn’t have teamed up with in other settings.
Different kind of college
My favourite memory was walking through Corpus Christi and breathing in the beauty of the place. Just the grandeur, the age, the beauty and realizing that I wanted to go here. Cambridge is a different kind of college, very different from everything we have in the U.S.
Best Memories of Traveling
Such amazing people
Getting to travel to other places on the weekends. Also, I loved going into it without knowing anyone and meeting such amazing people. We all got so close. The trip sent me home with a new perspective on life. I was definitely changed.
Traveling with friends
Spontaneous world traveling with my friends!
So much history
The best memory for me was the excursion to York and the opportunity of being on the exact same ground where Erik Bloodaxe stood, along with other Vikings. It was my first time being next to old ruins and so much history.
Going to Dublin
Going to Dublin and spending a weekend there, and making all the connections with people that I am still happy to have in my life
Swimming in the Mediterranean
Eating Nutella crepes and watching the Eiffel Tower light up with my friends, or swimming in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Italy.
Making new friends
Traveling all over Europe and making new friends. I will never forget this trip.
