Do the benefits of studying abroad outweigh the cost?
Some studying abroad costs little to none, and others can cost you thousands of dollars. It depends on your college and the programs that are offered. Some programs offer financial aid, and others do not (if that's what you mean by the cost). However, studying abroad allows you to broaden your views of the world, and gives you the ability to learn a new language (or become fluent in one you already kind of know). So in my opinion: yes, the benefits outweigh the cost.
