"The people at TEAN are extremely friendly and helpful. They really attempt and get to know their students and help them feel comfortable as much as they can. The pre-semester trip to Fiji was absolutely amazing and a perfect way to meet the other program members. The nervousness and anxiety that I felt on the flight over was immediately replaced with excitement once we arrived. The pre-semester trip and the orientation in Auckland made the transition to New Zealand and being abroad for the first time much easier."
