Going to the Netherlands was the best decision I ever made. I learned so much about myself, others and different cultures that I never would have been able to experience otherwise. Of course, it is a challenge moving to a completely new country, knowing not many people and having to live within a different cultural context, but this experience made me much more independent and confident. I feel like I can do pretty much anything by myself now, which I never would have said before going abroad. I would absolutely recommend going abroad, to Nijmegen especially, but to anywhere, because of how many great experiences are available to you that would not be otherwise. Dutch people are extremely laid back and friendly and I made many friends while I was abroad. I will always remember the trips, experiences and friends I made during this experience. I will also always remember how much I grew over those four months. 10/10 would absolutely recommend!

The best part about studying abroad is the people you meet. You will make life long friends and that can happen anywhere you go. If Radboud has a lot of classes that are interesting to you and help you earn credit at UD, I would definitely encourage you to study abroad in Nijmegen. The Netherlands is a great country, especially for people with no other language skills. The people are nice, the program is mostly well done, and it is so easy to travel to other places from the Netherlands. I definitely miss it already!

I absolutely recommend an experience abroad. It was an eye-opening semester filled with lessons I could never receive in a classroom. Independence, new found passions, spectacular sights, and interesting friends are just a couple of things that I have gained through a mere 5 months. I find it difficult to describe the great feeling of stepping out of your comfort zone and trying to fully immerse yourself into a new culture/mindset which this trip allowed me to do. I fully recommend this program.
Quick tips: plan out your travels, talk to everyone you can, and take steps to further your understanding of different people. Exceptional experience
