The campus was in safe neighborhood and one of the chicest in the city!

The workload of this program was perfectly balanced for a study abroad program. The workload was manageable, but not overwhelming. The program allowed students to learn both inside and outside of the classroom. The professors on the program also went above and beyond to carry learning beyond the classroom-- even if they were not a specific student's professor. I could not put together a better, more cohesive group of professors, or think of one thing to change in regards to this aspect of the program. I truly cherish my time abroad not only because of things I did on my own, but also the things I experienced, explored, or was guided through by a professor on their own time. It was a wonderful experience.

The classes are all very interesting and allow you to talk about things you may not usually have an opportunity to in a regular classroom setting.

Fantastic. I definitely felt like we had a lot of opportunities to interact with the culture.

The program fee, though seemingly large at first, covered so much that at the end of the trip I am truly amazed the program only cost that little. Not at any point did I feel my money was going to waste. Everything that fee went towards from housing to airport transportation, to housing, to excursions, to dinners, to weekend accommodations went above and beyond my expectations. Additionally, as much fun as exploring on Europe on your own is, it was nice to have two weekend trips handled almost entirely for you.

This program exceeded all of my expectations. It was so thoroughly planned in every aspect that there are no "bumps in the road" for students which allowed students to enjoy every thing to the fullest. It was fun, and the academic component was there, but the two melded together in a way I did not anticipate.

No amount of money could equate to the value of this program.

This program was excellent and I would recommend it to any UGA student interested in studying abroad.

This program was amazing! We had class in the morning and then plenty of free time to explore Paris on our own.

I will always remember this study abroad as the best 6 weeks of my undergraduate education. I experienced more about the world in the 6 weeks I spent in Paris than I have in my 3 years in undergrad. I am so glad that I picked this program for my study abroad, and I wish that I could participate in it again next year!

This program was life-changing for me. It's strange that six weeks can feel like a long time while you're living it, being impacted by it, but then you return home to everything being the same as when you left it. I came home from Europe a more well-rounded, independent person. The friendships I made on this program are rare and special, as well as the experiences themselves. It's one thing to see pictures and learn about history from afar, but getting to see the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and places like Place de la Concorde in person while learning about their cultural and historical significance, that is unique. That's the kind of thing this program can do for you. It's long enough for you to adapt to an entirely new way of living in an urban, European city, and get really familiar with the French state. 10/10 would recommend and I would do it all again in a heartbeat!

I wish I could do it all over again!

The UGA à Paris program was fantastic. The teachers were amazing as well as all of the students who participated. This is something you can't miss out on!

 

Stephen Lester Hewell, Summer 2017 Participant
Simply put, the best six weeks of my life.

I was so pleased with my professors and the experience I had studying in Paris. I came back to the States a more confident and cultured self, and I made a ton of amazing friends in the process!

 

Summer 2017 Participant
This trip immersed me in Parisian culture, provided me with new friendships, and gave me a new lens in which I view the world.

 

Katherine Nicole Sarris, Summer 2017 Participant
Amazing program! I was able to gain credit for major courses and explore Paris on my own. We had plenty of free time to really get to know the city.

 

Summer 2017 Participant
It was amazing. You become a part of Paris before you even realize it.
