Bret Lee Koch, Spring Break 2013 Participant
The cultural experience was extremely rewarding. I find that it is extremely important to broaden personal horizons to different cultures and elements of different cultures and I loved being able to adapt for a week to the United Kingdom customs and societal norms and step outside of my comfort zone for a week.

One of the highlights of the program was to visit the U.S. Embassy and learning from the different jobs and internships available to students.

The most rewarding part of the program was getting my informational interview set up and following through with it. It was very satisfying being able to walking into a company and sit down with someone after having arranged the whole meeting myself.
