My favorite part of this program was definitely the opportunity to meet new friends from an entirely new part of the world. The University of Stirling had a high percentage of exchange students, so not only was I meeting Scots, but students from all around the globe! We all learned to get along and work together towards similar goals, and everyone was ultra-supportive of one another. I made several life-long friends that I plan to visit as an adult.

Experiencing a new culture was very rewarding. While in Scotland, I had many conversations with the natives, whether it was a professor or someone on the bus. It was really cool to learn about the differences between us and also realize we had a lot in common!

The extracurricular activities by far were the best part. The academics were all right and different from KUs programs, but where I felt I grew the most was in the time I had around my classes with people from all over the world. For me it was that the program allowed for that open time with its credit requirements.
