Tessa Renee Newberry, Summer 2017 Participant
I think the excursions were perfectly timed and well planned so that they really added to the overall experience. The freedom and time to explore Korea outside of the town and school was awesome. It also made the bonding experience with my peers so much better.

Hazara Leon, Summer 2017 Participant
You really do learn how to balance work and school. As a college student this is a very valuable skill for learning to manage your life during your four years of college. Another great skill that you acquire is building connections. As you immerse yourself in the culture you begin to build friendships with your peers, students, Kyunghwa teachers, and even the people in the community.

Summer 2016 Participant
One skill I acquired through this program that I didn't expect to was flexibility. Because this is such a new program, there were some unexpected changes, and future students should be prepared to be flexible.
