Fall 2015 Participant
I think interning at an architecture firm where I felt like an included member of their team, and less of a tourist or outsider, was the most rewarding part.

Fall 2015 Participant
It would benefit students to take a French language program prior to going. Even though most people are able to speak enough English to communicate, it's very difficult to engage with people when you only know a limited amount of the language.

Claire Elizabeth Ryan, Fall 2017 Participant
My favorite part was getting to live like a French person, in a non touristy area, going to the bakery frequently, commuting on the metro, and enjoying cafe culture.
