Spring 2017 Participant
I never felt the homesickness nor the sense of "belonging" that was predicted, but I believe that this is a result of the country that I stayed in as opposed to how I was prepared. The study abroad team at UGA is really excellent in helping every step of the way.

There are a few organizations that host parties for exchange students, so it makes it very easy to meet other international students. Student houses also allow you to meet so many local and exchange students.

I was very immersed in the culture as I was an exchange student and not part of a UGA campus abroad.

Zurich is a very expensive city to live in, so I ended up spending a significantly higher than usual amount of money than I would in Athens. I think the exchange program was definitely worth it though. I met so many people, experienced a new culture, and learned to be more independent.

I found the approach to academics and grading at ETH extremely difficult, but I really enjoyed living in Zurich and being able to learn more about European Agriculture. I also got to take some amazing Nutrition and Epidemiology courses that I normally wouldn't take. UGA was so helpful, and they really made it easy for me to study abroad.

A great opportunity to travel, gain independence, and experience a new culture
