Making a second home
Submitted by Catie - Davidson College | June 05, 2016
My goal for study abroad was to feel like I was living in a new country for a semester and that's exactly what I got out of IFSA Butler in Valparaiso. They provide all the support that you could need to navigate the transition to living in Chile but don't require it, giving you the option to take it or figure out life on your own. The program administration, my host family and the other students on the program were all incredibility welcoming and friendly. It's challenging to encapsulate my semester's experience in few words, but this program provided me with exactly what I was looking for and the flexibility to make my six months abroad my own.

Best decision of my life
Submitted by Hannah J - George Washington University | May 04, 2016
Studying abroad at the University of Glasgow was one of the best decisions of my life and one I will cherish forever. The sports societies were accepting, the people were amazing, and the opportunities were vast. IFSA-Butler stayed with me through it all and made sure I was doing well. They also provided amazing excursions into Scotland.
Summer study abroad
Submitted by Amy - Towson University | April 28, 2016
This was a great option to study abroad and gain skills speaking Spanish for the summer. I could not take a whole semester to go abroad and I saw and learned so many amazing things in Merida and the surrounding area. Between Mayan ruins, to museums, to cenotes, and a 4 day trip to Cuba, they kept us busy and it was definitely a worthwhile experience.

Study abroad, like real life, always has its ups and downs. Not every day of study abroad felt like an adventure like I thought it might, but after spending an entire year at St. Andrews, really immersing myself in the culture and making new and long lasting friends, I can say, without a doubt, that who I was when I got here is not who I am now as I approach my final exams. Studying here was such a rewarding experience, and it was only enhanced by the IFSA Butler staff, who really start to feel like family by the end. If you have a chance to study here through Butler, I would HIGHLY recommend it!
Most incredible experience of my life
Submitted by malagia217 - Rhodes College | April 25, 2016
Studying abroad has completely changed my outlook on life and want every student to be able to have the same wonderful experience that I did. SO much of my incredible experience would not have been possible without the second-to-none team at IFSA-Butler. I chose the program and it just happened to be in Scotland; I will be forever grateful for this. Scotland is the most incredible and under-rated country that I have ever been to and, because of IFSA-Butler, I was able to really integrate myself into Scottish society. The IFSA team made it a point to check on us just enough so that we felt independent but knew that they were there if we ever needed anything. They have drop-in hours every week so that you are able to go to them with any problems you might have. I have never felt so supported by a group of people other than my parents. My experience at Parliament allowed me to see what issues are really facing the population of Scotland and this enabled me to connect with the city on a much deeper level. I fell in love with Edinburgh this semester and this would have been much more difficult if it had not been for IFSA-Butler and my time at Parliament.
