Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of the program was being able to experience cultures that are very different from the one we have here in the US. The religious diversity and presence in India was something that we focused on a lot and it was interesting to explore and learn about new religions that I previously did not know about.

Lindsey Christine Hanna, Summer 2017 Participant
I learned how to be more accepting of people who are different than I was used to. I was taught a skill that I find key to being a successful civilian and future army officer; this skill is the capability to understand why people behave the way they do and why their culture is the way it is. Before one can fix a problem, one must know WHY that problem is occurring, because it is very possibly that it might not actually even be a problem. It just looks that way through our western lenses.
