"I was able to get out of my shell by doing things on my own that I would never do in the United States, such as sightseeing, eating at restaurants, and shopping. Even with my lack of Korean, I was able to adapt to my surroundings well by venturing around Seoul and communicating with the locals without worrying about the language barrier." - Anna, Spring 2015?

The Program: Experience Seoul, South Korea, one of Asia's most high tech and modern cities. A complex blend of both Western modernism and traditional eastern culture, Seoul is a city of contrasts that offers many unique experiences. Ewha Womans University is the largest women's university in the world and one of the top universities in Korea. Founded in 1886, it is also one of the oldest Korean universities, and its sprawling campus grounds are home to over 21,000 students, 14 colleges, 13 graduate schools, and 37 research institutes. Located in one of Seoul's fashionable sections, it has a beautiful campus with state-of-the-art libraries, museums and student facilities. Ewha's well-established international program for undergraduate exchange students attracts students from all over the world. Ewha also offers Korean language courses at all levels. Although it is a women's university, both men and women are admitted into Ewha International Co-Ed Programs. http://www.ewha.ac.kr/english/
