Trip of a Lifetime. Unforgettable Friends, Experiences and Lessons.

Going on TBB will change you as a person. You will learn about how you deal with new things, stress, others, etc-- all things you will face in college anyways! You will get to know so many great people, experience new things, and be pushed beyond your limits. From India to South Africa to China, the whole experience is a whirlwind. Take lots of pictures and remember the little things! Cherish the relationships with your fellow TBBers. They will become some of your closest friends, even after the trip.

This gap year experience is the best of the best. It includes service learning, language immersion, fun, AND discussions/seminars about topics we all care about. You will miss your friends and family over the eight months, but think of all the great things you'll have to tell them when you get back. Enjoy!
