extremely well organized and planned and very practical for students like me and I would highly recommend it."
University of North Carolina CharlotteSemester in the Mediterranean"I read somewhere once that strangers are just family you haven't met yet and after coming here I have discovered that is true. These have been the best four months of my life and I have made some great friends. I will always hold Cyprus close to my heart and I could not have had a better time studying abroad. Thank you for the memories, the friends, the lessons and the experience. You have left a handprint on my heart."

Itâ??s one of those things that you cannot explain because others will never understand unless they were with you."

Mount Saint Mary's UniversitySummer in the Mediterranean: Early Christianity"The Summer in the Mediterranean: Early Christianity program really blended classes with experience. It was amazing to read and learn about such things as St. Paul and his travels and then go to where he actually walked and lived. I gained more from this experience that I can ever express and I look forward to sharing my knowledge with others interested in the same things."
Waynesburg CollegeSummer in the Mediterranean: Early Christianity"I feel so blessed to have had an opportunity to be part of the Summer in the Mediterranean 2007. Living in Cyprus has been an amazing experience. I learned many things in the classroom, but I learned even more out of the classroom. The in-country excursions and the trips to Greece, Italy and the Greek islands provided me with the chance to really learn about myself, as well as each place. I thank GLS for this opportunity and recommend this trip to any student wanting the perfect mix of travel, learning and excitement."
Western Michigan UniversitySummer in the Mediterranean: Greek Heritage"If you ever find yourself saying "Who am I and what am I doing," study abroad. Cyprus has become my home and I will miss the people I met here, the sights and walking to Zorpas late at night. I am a better person because of this experience."
University of Maryland College ParkSummer in the Mediterranean: Art & Photography"Cyprus is one of the best kept secrets in the world. The community shared among the Cypriots is unparalleled across the globe. I will never forget who I met and what I learned from being a part of their experience. This has, without a doubt, been the best summer of my life."
Ohio State UniversitySummer in the Mediterranean: Early Christianity"If I had to sum up my experience in Cyprus, I can't help but believe that this has been the best summer of my life. The people, the location and the experience are ideal, paradise in fact."
Colorado State UniversitySummer in the Mediterranean: International Marketing"This program has been the best spent summer to date. The places I have been able to visit and things I have been able to experience in such a short time I will remember for the rest of my life. I wish I never had to leave."
Vanderbilt UniversitySummer in the Mediterranean: Early Christianity"GLS knows the places they operate very well which translates to a great study abroad experience. Staff is extremely helpful in preparing for the trip and are available through cell phones (which they provide) 24 hours while you are with them. I took International Marketing and Early Christian Thought which were complemented well by my surroundings. My roommates and the other students were probably the best in the world. Totally recommend GLS."
Trinity UniversitySemester in the Mediterranean"When I became apart of the GLS family, I went in having my own expectations and goals. Yet, little by little while overseas my goals and expectations were not only met, but they begin to broaden and lead to the unexpected. I found that time after time I ended up trying something wonderfully new (i.e. belly dancing), and discovering new things about my personality and my capabilities. I loved the time that I spent in Europe and what made my time and trip even more fulfilling and worthwhile were the people. From the amazing staff (that took care of me on more than one occasion!) to the other students that GLS handpicked to ensure a good level of successes. For me, this experience was a step of faith that I'm glad I took, and I look forward to making this experience the first of many! Thank You GLS."
Missouri Southern State UniversitySemester in the Mediterranean"Deciding to study abroad in Cyprus was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It's hard leaving family and friends back home, but it is definitely worth it. I've seen and learned more in three months than I'm sure I will in a lifetime."
Boston UniversitySummer in the Mediterranean: Early Christianity"Cyprus was an experience that taught me about a culture, both independently and as part of the world; it taught me about myself and how to be a citizen of the world. GLS provided an opportunity to explore the world and to forge friendships that have become a testimony to my phenomenal experience in Nicosia."
University of OregonSummer in the Mediterranean: Art & Photography"Studying abroad in Cyprus was definitely once in a lifetime! It is unlike any other place in the world and truly I wouldn't trade the summer I spent there in for anything. It is beautiful. It is different. And I recommend the program to anyone who likes adventure and culture."
CUNY Brooklyn College, NY
"I think studying abroad definitely changed my perspective on life in the most positive way possible. it helped me truly experience and understand how in love I am with traveling and why I want to travel the world throughout my life. And no matter what I do in my life, I know I will always be a TRAVELER and now I have a whole new family of travelers who I can relate to. I made friends that I will last a lifetime and I have GLS to thank for that."
