Namibia2k16

Incredible experience! The program as a whole was very hands on and we were always working with people in the community, listening to speakers, and gaining knowledge of the local perspective. In terms of academics, the classes were not extremely difficult; however, if they were, it would have taken away from the overall experience. I learned a lot about myself, Namibian culture, and the role of building an international community.

Amazing experience and learning

The program is awesome, from the visit to south African to the stay in Namibia. It is so well organized that we could only so much within such short period of time. The staffs are amazing as well, they are more than just our professors, RA and cook; we built a meaningful relationship/friendship which just add to the experiential learning.

Great experience

I had an amazing time! This program was truly life changing. Southern Africa is a beautiful region of the world rich in culture, people, and history. This program did an amazing job of capturing all of this, and I am so grateful to have had this wonderful experience.

Summer 2016 study abroad in Cuernavaca, Mexico

I originally chose this program solely for the opportunity of an internship in the hospital. Not only did I learn a lot in my internship, but living and being apart of the community there changed my life.

Excellent place to study abroad

Between the Spanish language school, home stay, and internship sites this program does a great job with allowing you to be immersed in the culture and learn a new language according to your specific interests.
