"I think the greatest benefits of this experience was growing as a person. I can tell just from 7 weeks of being here that I feel more confident in unfamiliar situations as well as in speaking Spanish. Any challenges I had lead to greater things that I was able to learn from. I feel like I am a different person than I was before coming here and I can see better what I want to do in the future after coming here. I feel more confident as a person academically, professionally and personally. Honestly, this is the best program I could have asked for. The staff, families and experiences we had here were second to none. When I talk to others who have studied abroad before in different programs, their experiences don't compare to this. I'm so thankful I chose SOL!"
