This is the first time this Faculty-Led Program is being offered. When students return from this program, we will include their testimonials. Until then, here are some thoughts that this year’s participants wanted to share about going on an FLP.
Many will tell you that studying abroad will change you, it's impossible to explain how true this really is. I discovered something new in myself every day I was abroad.- Yasmin
Studying abroad was one of the best decisions I've made in my college career. If you don't think that you can commit to a semester or year abroad, then the summer program is a great fit for you. I've learned so many helpful skills: independence, teamwork, language skills, and the program was perfect to experience your major in other countries. I have plans to go abroad again, and hopefully live abroad.- Alison
If you have the opportunity to study abroad, take it! You learn new things about yourself and about local culture, which is always interesting. Also, if you have free time during your program, use that time to explore. There is so much to see and learn, it was just such a great experience.- Katherine
Immersing yourself into a whole other culture is indescribable. It's something that cannot be taught in the classroom and can only be taken through real experiences. It's the act of breaking your routine, moving into another person's space, and living that space that will enhance life skills.- Sabrina
