Summer 2016 Participant
I learned that although we don't seem that different than Europeans, that we do have a different culture and lifestyle, and instead of criticizing them or thinking they're weird, that its better to embrace it and be understanding. It will open your mind to all sorts of things that you used to be closed-minded about.

Summer 2014 Participant
The city of Freiburg is an excellent and beautiful place to study and explore. The field trips were a lot of fun as well.

Kara Rose Lewis, Summer 2012 Participant
I loved meeting new people, whether from KU or other schools. I enjoyed learning about my German roommates and the different cultural concepts and avenues. I also enjoyed having free weekends to travel to other places on my own or with the group.

Samantha Jean Harms, Summer 2016 Participant
The most rewarding was the lifelong lessons and lifelong friends I gained from the program. I made friends at KU, throughout the states, and throughout the world. I learned how to be environmental friendly, how this world could be sustainable, and was taught that everything we taught about in class is possible out in the real world. Other elements I found extremely rewarding were traveling, both by myself and with the class, learning about the outside world, learning about myself, hiking daily in the most beautiful place, and simply just being in Freiburg. This place can change someone's soul, and it certainly changed mine for the best.

Summer 2012 Participant
I enjoyed living in the city of Freiburg. It was a vibrant, fun place with many cultural attractions and was easy to navigate.
