Fall 2015 Participant
My favorite part of the program was making connections with the people I work with. Sometimes while living abroad, it is hard to make local friends. Working is a great opportunity to get to know local people, and also a great way to learn how different cultures treat the same profession.

Fall 2015 Participant
Take french before coming. 100% take as many courses as you can. You will get so much more out of the experience if you can speak French.

Jared John Pechauer, Fall 2015 Participant
The most rewarding parts were working in an architecture office there, and becoming part of the working/business culture of Paris. You really feel like you are a part of the city when you work in it. It is much different than just studying abroad. It makes you feel that, although you are not Parisian, you are also not just a tourist anymore.
