My favorite part of the program was going on the Highland Trip in Scotland and being able to hear about the culture and history of the country from a native who was very knowledgeable about Scottish mythology, folktales, music, war, etc. When hearing stories like that, its very different from what you might learn in a classroom, so I don't think I'll ever forget it.

I learned that this program helps create bonds between students and faculty, but it also encourages you to learn more about yourself. In the short amount of time that we were abroad, I discovered new things about myself that I only would have found by traveling abroad.

The exploration and adventure, as well as all of the friendships I made during the trip that I expect to last long into the future. It was an exciting experience, traveling an entirely foreign part of the world with a group of people I knew nothing about before embarking on this trip; it really challenged me (in a good way) and helped me grow as a person.
