Mackenzie A Eckman, Summer 2015 Participant
My favorite part about being abroad was being on my own. KU isn't very far from home for me, so this was truly an eye-opening experience because it taught me how to be self-sufficient and showed me confidence that I didn't know I had.

Charlie Larson Harte, Summer 2018 Participant
There is always something to do. If you are sitting in your room at any point, you are doing something wrong and you should go out and explore.

Summer 2017 Participant
I learned so much about the history and culture of Ireland. It really is amazing how important the history is in Ireland and is something I will always remember and hope to come back to.
