Program Reviews:
Aaron Michael Rule, Fall 2015 Participant
The most rewarding part of this program was finding a new drive. A drive to pursue international architecture and to experience a new culture. Maybe even moving to Korea after I gain some experience in America and take that experience to Asia.

Fall 2015 Participant
The best part of the program was learning the differences between my customs and the traditional and modern customs of South Korea. Specifically how South Korea was affected after the Korean War, and the role of the United States in their rapid urbanization.

Fall 2018 Participant
From an academic point of view, definitely the invaluable experience I gained by being able to work in an architectural firm and learning the ropes of how a firm operates. From a personal point of view, the immersion of being in South Korea and being able to gain new insights into Korean culture was invaluable.
