Program Reviews:
  Laura Kathryn Florick, Summer 2012 Participant
The cultural experiences, absolutely--I learned so much by being able to compare my own life here to life in India. Living with various host families and in the ashrams was a real eye opener.

Summer 2012 Participant
My favorite part of the program was meeting the locals and living with the locals. I got to do things that I would probably never have done if I wasn't a part of this program, such as celebrating religious holidays, going to schools and visiting beautiful Temples in Central India.

Summer 2016 Participant
Be open minded about lots of things about the new culture and face your fears head on if you deal with them abroad.
