Bailey Katherine Wells, Spring 2013 Participant
Since we were able to choose our own projects, I was able to choose things that I knew I would enjoy working on. And because of that, I invested lots of time into my projects and I think that they will be portfolio worthy.

The traveling was unbelievable. I traveled in many different styles; alone, new friends, old friends, to visit friends or family. Every trip was amazing, different and a huge learning lesson on people, languages, cultures, foods, and fun.

Elizabeth Ann Post, Spring 2014 Participant
My favorite part of the Trier program was meeting new people from such a diverse cultural background and language. Having little German knowledge, I had to make friends quickly in order to have additional support and assistance when making my way through my daily life. Because they were kind enough to help me find my way, we are certainly more than just acquaintances; we have truly kept a bond that nobody else could have experienced without that opportunity. This idea of stepping outside of my comfort zone is what truly is my favorite part of this experience. I would not have normally approached people like I had while studying abroad without that experience. Traveling to unknown parts of the country (as well as other countries), became easier, because I was able to approach people more. Since arriving back in the US, I have certainly maintained this mentality, and I feel quite appreciative having had this experience.
