Program Reviews:
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.

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 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 2018 Participant
My favorite part of the program was the connection between classes and the city. After every class I would walk around my temporary home city and see it in a whole new way, thanks to the topics we had covered in class.

Mackenzie Kay Davis, Summer 2012 Participant
The most rewarding parts of the program were being able to travel and experience a new culture. It was great to see how other countries view things and how different their customs and values are compared to ours in the United States.
