I learned to not worry so much. I would encourage future students to realize you are not alone, and everyone is nervous, but go into with an open mind and everything will be okay.

I love spending a month in Paris. I was able to see so much and do so many things and truly be able to immerse myself into the Parisien lifestyle and culture.
Aubrie Rae Wauhob, Summer 2016 Participant
What I found most rewarding was that I was able to grow in the ability to use my own abilities. While being a foreign country, experiencing a foreign culture and language you really have to rely on yourself and your skills. Before the program I wasn't aware of my abilities, as they never had to be put to the test like they did while traveling and living in Paris. Coming out of the program I feel much more confident in myself and more adventurous.
