Program Reviews:
Kara Rose Lewis, Summer 2012 Participant
This is definitely a program worth doing whether your major is environmental studies, architecture, or engineering. This program offers a variety of learning opportunities within different majors.

Summer 2012 Participant
Take full advantage of the black forest region. Trips to large European cities can be fun, but there is a lot to see in the Freiburg area.

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 really enjoyed all of the afternoon field trips. Taking trips to the European Parliament, the organic winery, and the ecologically friendly hotel made for great supplements to the classroom content.

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.
