Spring Break 2017 Participant
I found interacting with the locals to be the most rewarding. After meeting people and making small talk, they never hesitated to begin discussing politics or other things about America which they wished to learn about. Additionally, I became much more educated on Brexit. Hearing the views of Europeans on both their national issues, but also on political situations in America, was truly an eye-opening experience.

Spring Break 2017 Participant
Bring comfortable walking shoes! Comfort over style was the mantra all week.

Spring Break 2017 Participant
I learned a lot about myself, the social differences between the UK and the US, and also how to be flexible and adjust myself to fit in socially and keep myself safe in a new place.
