Testimonial:
What would you say to a student considering this study abroad program or study abroad in general?
Studying abroad was an extremely enriching experience and will certainly be one of the highlights of my time at Princeton despite only being halfway done! Although the academic experience was eye-opening and broadened my horizons to how academia functions beyond the classrooms of the 'Orange Bubble,' my experiences outside of my host universities made the experience what it was. Wether it was shooting the breeze with the Paraguayans in the fruit store right by my apartment to discuss plans for our fútbol match versus the Chilleans later that night, strumming the guitar with a Salteño friend in his apartment and singing out of tune to 90s classics, or sharing a mate with newly made friends in a hostel in Ushuaia,"the end of the world", the relations I made, forged in the unique tongue of the 'criollo' language, were unforgettable. While learning how to navigate a foreign city, plan trips, and budget my money were all valuable life lessons that I couldn't get in Princeton, tapping into the rich argentine culture was a rare experience that left an indelible mark upon me, tearing down engrained social reservations and paving the path for genuine friendships with complete strangers. While forging friendships with strangers in a foreign country may seem inconsequential, it was not easy, rather it required a complete immersion into the local culture, which was what I was searching for all along. Moreover, it made me realize more about myself than I had learned in all my years of schooling, and that discovery can only be summed up in rioplatanese: "ándate tranqui che."
