Student Reviews

Study Abroad is the Best Experience of My Life
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

LIM College is a small scale school that students can work very closely with every professors. Over the past few semesters, I did good at the school and professors were very helpful during the semester. As an international student, I want to attend the short term study abroad program.
