    Student Feedback

    “Embrace every single moment of your experience because it will change your life in so many positive ways!”-  Participant, Summer 2015

    "Try to interact with the local students as much as possible. They are really friendly and willing to show you around." -  Participant, Summer 2015

    "The classes were a lot smaller and more intimate. There was more hands-on activities such as excursions to learn about Chinese medicine and acupuncture. There was a greater sense of community within the classes. And of course, the topics and viewpoints were different." - Participant, Summer 2015
