Program Reviews:
Kara Rose Lewis, Summer 2012 Participant
The trip as a whole was very rewarding, especially in terms of environmental studies and understanding urban planning and development concepts geared toward sustainability. The trip was rewarding because I not only learned and saw a "green" way of living, but I actually lived it myself; and it was a very different lifestyle.

Summer 2018 Participant
The elements that I found to be the most rewarding were the opportunity to learn through observing and experiencing the local culture of Freiburg and having three-day weekends to travel and explore other countries and cultures!

Summer 2014 Participant
The fact that we learned from the city more than we did from power-points or examples. The city itself could've been used as our textbook.

Samantha Jean Harms, Summer 2016 Participant
The most vital things that I learned deal with sustainability, living life greener, and how clean energy is actually possible. For everyone on this program, and everyone in general, it is critical we learn this in order to save our planet. This program taught me that and gave me faith that it could be possible.

Miranda J Doores, Summer 2018 Participant
I loved that we got to live with other German and international students in the student living quarters. That really helped us make friends and get more involved in clubs, groups, etc.
