Program Reviews:
Sarah J Brown, Fall 2018 Participant
I learned many things on this trip and it would be difficult to put it all into words. The one thing I feel was most effective towards my personal growth was the LIFE program. I learned a lot about myself and others. It was the best way to connect with the people I would be traveling with. I discovered the fears I always knew I had but never wanted to admit to myself. I was able to face these fears head-on in front of all my new friends. I learned that you can feel the support of others even if you barely know them. I learned that other people share similar life experiences as I do and it was really helpful to hear the things I have in common with these individuals.

The most rewarding part of the program was being able to meet and connect with people from a different culture and ask questions with each other that we normally wouldn't get the opportunity to.

Nhan Thuy Nguyen, Summer 2019 Participant
It was amazing to be in Italy, but it was even better to have a professor that is from KU. This program is so rewarding in itself. I had the best time getting to know people and experiencing the small town culture in Italy. It wasn't busy like the big touristy towns which made it a lot easier to get to know the locals and find out more about their culture.
