The Swedish Program provided the ideal abroad experience with customizable options

I completed the Swedish Prorgam's Fall 2011 semester, and I had some of the best times of my life. I chose to live in an apartment with another American student (as opposed to living with a host family). The apartment was very nice, and our apartment mates were all Swedes; so, we weren't completely isolated and surrounded by Americans all the time. While I didn't chose to live with a host family, I did opt to have a contact family--a Swedish family with whom I could bond, have meals with, etc. The contact family was a perfect option for me--I was invited to their home often, got to visit their summer home outside of Stockholm, etc. We still keep in touch one year later. In terms of academics, TSP is no "semester off." Classes demand hard work, and the professors and classes are top notch. You are allowed, though, 2 seperate weeks off from school, each specifically alotted for personal travel time (much more time than is common in many other abroad programs).
In terms of living and studying in Stockholm, I can't recommend it enough--I fell in love with the people and the city.

The Swedish Program allowed me to really discover Stockholm, to explore the culture, meet people, and learn the language. No matter where I go or what I do, I will always carry a piece of Stockholm with me.

I loved it. My host family was one of the best parts. I really liked the program staff, the structure, and the city itself. It was a fantastic experience. I feel that the Swedish Program really helped me to grow and increase my cultural awareness. I learned more about myself than I have in the past 21 years.

I can't thank the Program enough for giving me this experience. It gave me a new perspective on the world, on America, and on myself. I will forever turn to this semester with the Swedish Program for unforgettable memories.
