Taylor Alene Ogden, Maymester 2017 Participant
This program allowed me to experience things I would not have been able to otherwise and made me a more well-rounded person; I came away from this trip with new friends, stories, knowledge, and viewpoints that I will cherish forever.

Sarah C Kellogg, Summer 2016 Participant
All who wander are not lost! Don't be afraid aimlessly wander, you might discover something amazing off the beaten path!

Summer 2016 Participant
Staff was really flexible when it came to students' personal needs.

There was so much to take away from the whole experience. From the natural wonders to the culture and history to the locals and every day life, Scotland really had it all. I'll cherish my experiences there forever.
