Program Reviews:
Joseph Jancsics, Winter Break 2016 Participant
Taking away a significant new life experience, beyond what a typical classroom course can deliver. We saw so much more of Cuba than I was expecting, and Miami provided an unexpected level of comparison and contrast.

Winter Break 2017 Participant
The time we spent at the farm in Vinales was the most enjoyable. Learning about agriculture in Cuba is an important and unique opportunity for a study abroad program.

Winter Break 2016 Participant
Like any experience that removes you from your comfort zone, go into it with an open mind and an eagerness to learn.
