Samantha Jean Orender, Winter Break 2018 Participant
The most rewarding part of this program was the culture. I was immersed in a culture that I had perceived as completely different from my own, and through this experience and talking to these people, I was able to understand that my life and the life of a typical Israeli, while different, were rooted in the same things.

Winter Break 2016 Participant
The hardest part of the trip is picking a favorite experience. The entire trip from start to finish is a blur of cultural and academic experiences unlike anything I could have imagined. Instantly, I found myself enthralled in the Israeli culture. Eating community style, enjoying walks on the board walk, visiting ancient historical sites, and modern businesses blended the old and the new in a way I had never anticipated.

Katlyn Meggers, Winter Break 2016 Participant
As an engineering student, there was a lot I did not understand about business terminology and how they functioned in general. Since Israel is such a small country, they had a very interesting system set up with the government in regards to funding and starting up businesses. There are so many opportunities there for students if they ever were considering starting their own company. Israel provides a unique culture that fosters innovation and opportunity that you can't find anywhere else.
