Program Reviews:
Summer 2017 Participant
Embrace the culture surrounding you. Things will be different than you're used to; that's the beauty of it. Do not go on this trip if you aren't looking to challenge your personal comforts.

Winter Break 2019 Participant
The face-to-face interaction with foreign nations was instrumental to a successful trip. We were able to learn how sports are ran around the world.

Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of the program was being able to see and be a part of places that we have studied and to be able to do it with a group of people your age with the same interests.
