Program Reviews:
Dayna Leanne Hardgrove, Spring 2016 Participant
I really enjoyed my courses at the National University of Singapore. The teaching style there was different than at UGA but I feel like I really was able to learn a lot and in a different way which benefitted me as a student. The work was challenging and the expectations were high, however I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.

Dayna Leanne Hardgrove, Spring 2016 Participant
I felt safer in Singapore than I have ever felt in any country due to the strict laws and expectations for the citizens. Around Southeast Asia, there were instances where I did not feel particularly safe, however if you make smart decisions and stay aware, you can avoid finding yourself in dangerous situations.

Sreinick Keo, Spring 2016 Participant
It will be nice to not take to many hard classes since you will be tempted to travel much often. This will allow you to avoid any missing assignments/classes or regret about not able to explore the different cultures while you are abroad.

Had a fantastic experience exploring the region and meeting local students.
