Program Reviews:
William Thomas Reintjes, Summer 2017 Participant
The most important thing I learned is that it is very important to experience new cultures, because you might find yourself wanting to become a part of it.

David D Depew, Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part was how friendly everyone we met was. Even though we may have been bumbling around Ljubljana and Portoroz in the evenings with little idea what we were doing, everyone from business owners to just people on the street were pleasant, helpful, and genuinely happy to have our company.

Sean Patrick Murray, Summer 2016 Participant
The itinerary was structured in an organized way so we did not waste our limited time, but also allowed for free time so students could visit places and see sites that the entire group might not necessarily be interested in. For example, I spent part of my free time visiting one of the biggest breweries in the nation, which is something not everyone on the trip would have been interested in doing.
