I found my interactions with the professors was the most rewarding. During the normal school semesters in the U.S., I never really reached out and got to know my professors. This trip encouraged me to get to know and interact with them on a daily basis. Coming back for this fall semester, I am excited to see them again and tell them about the rest of my summer.

Everything in Turkey is CHEAP! I budgeted to spend at least $1000 more. Istanbul is VERY modern and like any other big city.

Go into this program with tolerance and an open-mind.

I loved being so far out of my element; learning how to get around Ortakoy, learning Turkish and getting used to a new culture in a short amount of time. I think this study abroad program offers students a unique opportunity to get a one on one learning experience from your professors, including the dean of the law school! We had the opportunity to learn Turkish criminal law from one of the authors of the Turkish criminal code (Professor Yenisey) .

The opportunity to meet Dean Mazza in a non academic environment was well as getting to take a class from him, getting to take a class on Criminal Procedure from Professor Yenisey, going Ephesus and the House of the Virgin Mary on the excursion. I fell in love with Istanbul!
