Migration and Globalization: Engaging our Communities Best experience of my life!

Reviewed by yahoo66student on .

What an incredible time in my life-- I would go back in a heartbeat! I am still in touch with several of the lifelong friends I made during my semester in Mexico. The two houses are beautiful and it's an awesome neighborhood. I had the absolute best family for the home stay-- although all of my cohort would have said that about their families! I felt intellectually challenged and was exposed to so many new ideas and ways of thinking. With one exc... Read more

Migration and Globalization: Engaging our Communities Expectations not met; unorganized

Reviewed by denstudent on .

This program is very unorganized. Staff/profs here can be very unprofessional and insensitive at some times, which can be a turn off. The way some excursions were planed could have been better time wise. Other than that I enjoyed meeting new people and creating close bond with people in the program as well as making Mexican friends. Read more

Migration and Globalization: Engaging our Communities Great experience, but very hectic.

Reviewed by sporty5567student on .

The Migration and Globalization program was an interesting experience to say the least. It was a really good experience for me personally because it was my first time out of the country, and traveling alone. The environment had a lot of students when I was here so it made me feel at home. This program was also very hectic and unorganized at times. We have classes every week but the times of your classes and even the days change throughout the sem... Read more

Migration and Globalization: Engaging our Communities CGE is an amazing program

Reviewed by Maxstudent on .

CGE really offers one of the most high-quality study abroad programs here in Mexico. We got to meet a lot of guest speakers and I got to learn a lot more about immigration, social issues, and politics in Mexico. What I want to highlight and want you to take advantage of is the internship course, where a student can do an internship but at the same time get credits in various majors: business, biology, history, political science, etc. If you want ...

Migration and Globalization: Engaging our Communities Cool

Reviewed by Cyle student on .

This program has been a brilliant experience. I would have liked to see more communication, and for the program to be more punctual on time. I understand that there is a cultural time frame difference, but schedules should be precise. The schedules sometimes came late in the week and it would be better if the students received them earlier so we can plan our own endeavors around the schedule. The faculty and staff is really accommodating and it g... Read more

Reviewed by soy-yostudent on .

CGE has been a fantastic experience. The school and its faculty are very well established in the communities they work with, and provide outstanding opportunities for cultural experiences, internships, and excursions that do an excellent job of putting classes in context. I traveled Mexico in 2009, and can really appreciate the uniqueness of many of the opportunities provided by CGE. The professors I have had have been phenomenal. I can't fin... Read more

Migration and Globalization: Engaging our Communities Enganging with community, speakers, academics, and common daily life allowed for a overall learning and experiential atmosphere.

Reviewed by Student2013student on .

I enjoyed the fact that we were not learning in the classroom, but also aside of it. The speakers, field trips, videos, etc., complimented with our learning material and made it much easier to learn, identify, and become aware of cultural, social, economic, political, etc. differences. I enjoyed having our final projects through which I learned a lot with my peers. Though, one of my suggestions for them would be to test students before placing th... Read more

Migration and Globalization: Engaging our Communities Enriching

Reviewed by Jessie Leigh Marsonstudent on .

Mexico has changed my life. Everything I have learned here, about a different culture, about social issues, and also about myself has completely flipped my world. Between the classes, the guest speakers, the excursions and the two different home stays I feel that I have gotten as much out of this experience that I possibly could in four months. This is a great program and I hope that it continues to be available for years to come. Read more

Migration and Globalization: Engaging our Communities Come Back in a Heart Beat

Reviewed by Sally Fifieldstudent on .

If I had the opportunity to study abroad with Center for Global Education I would come back in a heart beat. I loved the home stays, the classes, and the weekend excursions/opportunities. At times it could improve on organization, but overall this has been a wonderful experience. Read more
