BCGS was a challenge in all the best ways possible. We were pushed outside our comfort zones, but the triumph and sense of accomplishment we felt afterwards, was perhaps the most rewarding part of all.

If you want to make studying abroad a thought-provoking experience, I encourage you to keep track of every little culture shock as well!

Student Quote from Sinai Cruz

Pond in Kyoto

"My courses allowed me to explore a 1,000 year old city, steeped with historical locales, religious sites, and traditions. After school, my friends and I were able to enjoy modern aspects of Kyoto, like wandering through the shopping district or singing karaoke."
