Patrick M Sawyer, Academic Year 2018 Participant
I think my favorite part of the DIS program was the way they approached their academics, it was a perfect mix of time spent both inside and outside of the classroom. Mixing field studies and site visits with what we were focusing on class made for a very intriguing class environment.

Studying abroad is an invaluable experience that can be scary and sometimes uncomfortable, but it is the best thing you could ever do. Take the leap. My semester abroad was the best four months of my life. Be open-minded, be spontaneous, and do what interests you. Take study abroad as an opportunity to get to know yourself and explore your interests.

DIS integrated independent travel time as well as guided study tours, giving me a broad range of travel experiences that balanced the academic course load.
