Finley Alexandria Anderson-Dircks, Spring 2017 Participant
There is a higher quality of cultural learning that occurs when you live and immerse yourself in a culture completely by yourself. I made so many lifelong friends overseas from countries across the world and learned far more about the U.K. than I ever could have from the states.

Finley Alexandria Anderson-Dircks, Spring 2017 Participant
Going to Lancaster was one of the best experiences I've ever had! Everything is cheap because you're not in a big city but the downtown area still gives you a city experience. The people are so friendly and welcoming and the quality of education you're getting is top-notch. I highly recommend the program to anyone who might be interested!

Go! You can make it happen financially even if you end up living on peanut butter and ramen! If you have any desire to travel, take the opportunity to study abroad and live somewhere else for as long as possible--you'll never get another chance like this.
