Study Abroad Experience:
The CIEE program is very effective in terms of integrating students with the Czech culture. Students are required to take Czech language classes, and are also forced to take trips outside of Prague into lesser-known towns/parts of the Czech Republic. Prague itself is an amazing city -- it is beautiful, fun, cheap and has a lot to offer historically. It is very interesting to study in a Central European country, which was previously under Communist rule, because the effects of Soviet society are still seen and felt today. For any student who wants something a bit different, but still desires to be in Europe, Prague is a great option.
