I loved studying abroad. What is your concern about doing it? For me, I didn't want to be away for an entire school year. Many people do junior year abroad but since I had never traveled out of the country before, it seemed like too much of a commitment. So I researched different programs and found one that was only one term long. Some universities have even shorter programs over the summer.
As for cost, it's usually covered by financial aid and depending on where you go, could even end up costing less than your current college.
It's hard to answer your question without knowing you or what concerns you in particular, but overall I recommend studying abroad. Changing your perspective can change your life!
