Sara S. EF Gap Semester Class of Fall 2019
My EF Gap Semester was one of the best times of my life; it was structured but free and was an experience that I got to make the most of. I gained a lot and grew immensely as a person because of my gap semester. Barring the typical meeting new people and experiencing new cultures, you learn how to interact with yourself and what you need to succeed which is incredibly valuable when going into college or a career.
David A., EF Gap Semester Fall '19 Harvard University '24
My gap semester made me a more confident person. With my new confidence and leadership skills, I feel more ready and mature when it comes to entering college in the fall.
