Program Reviews:
Jessica Nicole Cohen, Summer 2017 Participant
I found that studying in a completely different culture and living independently was very rewarding. I made lifelong friendships with students from other universities as well as working professionals in the Czech Republic. Being someone who wants to work internationally someday, this program was very beneficial to me.

Steven Gregory Duke, Summer 2018 Participant
At first I was very intimidated, I knew I wanted to study abroad, but I didnt know where to start or where to go. I ended up walking into the Office of Study Abroad one day, and was helped by the compassionate and helpful staff into looking at programs that could be constructive to my major. After a few searches and a few meetings around campus, I knew that taking an internship would not only satisfy my educational requirement but that Prague would be the best way to explore Europe as a whole.

The most rewarding aspect was working with fellow interns from across the globe. People from the United States and from Europe, coming together and creating meaningful pieces of literature to inform the people of Europe about Water Consumption. Putting in work at the internship was a good for resume building as well as testing the waters for future careers.
