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 2016 Participant
Learning basics of the language (in this case, learning to read hangul) is an incredible help. It may seem obvious, but showing respect to the culture and showing people you are interested in them helps so much. Obviously, the functional aspect of understanding what it is you are buying or where you are going is helpful, but people appreciate when foreigners make the effort (especially in a place like Korea, where it's not completely necessary, so foreigners tend to have a bad reputation).

Aaron Michael Rule, Fall 2015 Participant
I believe that learning the language before they move to Korea would be very useful. I had an amazing time overall, but knowing the language would enhance the experience of being part of the culture and open a Pandora's Box of opportunity and engagement. When I return to Korea, I will make sure to have a good understanding of the language.
