Program Reviews:
Connor Heo, Summer 2016 Participant
It definitely is a case of what you put in you get out. The students who want to go out and explore everyday can most definitely do that. On the other hand, if a student prefers to chill at home or just walk around town, this program caters to that, too. There is enough time in the program to fall into a daily routine.

William Spencer Klaviter, Summer 2017 Participant
One point that I would strongly make about this program is the idea that you shouldn't be afraid to try new things and everything that you have learned so far. Yes, you will make mistakes and laugh at yourself quite a few times, but by doing this, you are able to gain not only confidence in what you are learning, but you are able to also help further your skills and experience much more than you ever would be able to in just a classroom.

Michael Scott Webster, Summer 2018 Participant
I really enjoyed the first two weeks of traveling around Germany and experiencing a variety of different cities, such as Köln, Bonn, and Berlin. Each of these cities has their own unique history, and cultural practices and that really fascinated me.
