The experiential education was amazing-- The learning we did came from the sites we visited, the things we saw, the people we talked to, the ideas the environment gave us.
Thomas Simon Birdeno, Summer 2014 Participant
Interacting with the locals was amazing. They were happy to share history, personal experience, and cultural insight that you cannot find in a textbook.

Perhaps the most rewarding part of the trip was the community that you make within the BSI group. You get to meet so many great KU students who you would not have met otherwise. I really considered the BSI 2015 group a family.
