One of the best choices I have ever made

I loved studying abroad in Shanghai with the USAC Program. The program price is very reasonable compared to other programs in China. The USAC administration in the U.S. and China was very helpful before and during the program. I loved the cultural immersion tours to Beijing, Xi'an, and the smaller cities around Shanghai. The school is very centrally located and is only a few stops away from Nanjing Rd (the main shopping area). The campus also has many food options in case you don't want to eat at the school cafeteria. Overall, choosing the USAC Shanghai program was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to study abroad.

Last Semester of College Abroad

Viterbo is a great city to study abroad in because it is filled with friendly locals. The town is small enough that people will know you are American and will be very patient as you try to use your new Italian skills. The program did a great job of showing students around town. The orientation was great. The classes were very easy but you definitely learn enough in the Italian courses.

Torino

I came into the program expecting to be roaming around Europe essentially on my own. I wanted to see what the world offered and I had always wanted to travel to Italy, so I decided to enroll in the Torino program through usac. It ended up being one of the best decisions of my life - as cheesy as that sounds.
I somehow quickly met amazing people within my program, was living downtown in probably the most ideal spot in the city, and fully felt immersed within the Italian culture. Choosing Torino over maybe Florence or Rome for a study abroad was so overly worth it. I was thrown into a city that did not cater towards tourists, it was probably the most authentic feel of Italy you can get.
I never felt homesick during my trip abroad. I always felt like there was something to do within the city - whether that be saturday markets, walks to the park, trips to the museum, bar crawls, shopping, etc. Torino was also in a great location for traveling outside of the country (France and Switzerland are close by). I truly was so in awe of the city and what it had to offer - this experience definitely changed me in more ways than one. Studying abroad opens your eyes to the cultures you maybe didn't know about or understand. You begin to feel at home. I don't think you can go wrong with Torino.

My Study Abroad

My study abroad experience with USAC was more than I could hve hoped for or imagined before landing in Santiago. All of our programmers at Andres Bello were helpful, kind, friendly, and informative. I was placed with a great host family who I still stay in contact with. I would recommend USAC to anyone who asked.

Vida a la Playa

My time in Spain (Basque Country) can be explained by my days spent on the beach. Each morning I would walk to school along the boardwalk with the famous San Sebastian banister. The walk was long but the sunrises were beautiful and I got to meet up with my friends on the way. As we walked we practiced our Spanish, admired the scenery and made weekend plans. After classes we would head home for a long almuerzo with our host families followed by adventuring to the beach to surf. While surfing we experienced one of the best views of San Sebastian as we watched the sun go down over the horizon and the city lights flicker on. Some nights you could find my friends and I wandering along the beach with gelato from boulevard, chatting about all of our adventures. Even when the weather cooled down we were drawn to the beach, the ocean and the adventure of the San Sebastian coast. It wasn't always easy but we took each wave together and embraced the swim!
