Jenna Maria Christian D'Ottavio Swanson, Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of the program was honestly my class. My teachers, my classmates, the information I obtained. All of it. This program is incredible. I learned so much!

Nicholas Charles McMonigle, Summer 2014 Participant
I think the academic experience was by far the most rewarding part of the program. The instruction at Al Akhawayn University is incredible; the teachers deserve more credit. I learned an immense amount of Arabic through the program.

Rebekah R Burgweger, Summer 2016 Participant
Every weekend I would go on a trip to a different city. I visited Chefchaouen, Rabat, Marrakech, the Sahara, and many more cities. While some trips were planned by the program, others trips were planned by the students. By far my favorite trip was when I visited Essouira and I walked in the very spot that Emilia Clark had walked on Game of Thrones. Not only did I see the location of the famous "dracarys" Game of Thrones scene, but I also galloped with a horse on the beach and I rode a 4-wheeler on the beach. Furthermore, I was finally getting comfortable using my language skills.
