Program Reviews:
Kaitlin Krause, Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part was the excursions to Seoul and Sokcho. They were super fun and that's where I got closer with the other people on the practicum. I also really got to see all different eras of Korean culture on these trips; ancient past to modern present. I'm already planning on visiting again!

Deja A Jones, Summer 2019 Participant
Spending time with the students is more rewarding than words. The students and the connections with them make the program. I would drop everything to go back and be with them! They are some of the brightest and most genuine people I have met!

Kathryn Elizabeth Anderson, Summer 2016 Participant
I have learned the importance of flexibility and patience. When working in another country and navigating different cultural expectations, there were often times when I would have to change my original plan of action to fit the situation, which helped me to build on my ability to be flexible in situations. It is very important to keep an open mind and always be prepared and open to new things.
