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.

Andrew A Moore, Summer 2019 Participant
When the faculty told us that we needed to be ready for business at all times, that is a good rule to live by on the trip. Some of the other people did not take that rule seriously and paid the price in my opinion. I would also recommend packing extremely light (a single backpack sufficed for me), researching the visits beforehand, keeping a journal for your own personal memory, and taking just a crash course on the language for a month or two beforehand, because it will impress the faculty and the local people.

Summer 2017 Participant
When a representative from the US Embassy visited, he explained that he had learned the most about his own country by leaving it. He also spoke about how Slovenians are very lucky to have a small country because the same model would not work in a larger more diverse population like the US. I was able to experience this myself through our company visits. While I learned a lot about Slovenia, I debatably learned just as much about the United States while abroad. There is such a strong global interdependence that I was able to learn about a variety of places in just ten days! I believe that this experience enhanced my ability to think and consider multiple perspectives, as we were constantly faced with opportunities that led to me considering different cultures and experiences.
