France is wonderful, especially if you keep an open mind about food, about the people.

What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Program Testimonials
Do it. You get to learn so much on this program, but it doesn't feel like you're learning. You get to learn through experience and see parts of southern France that most people do not get to see.

What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Program Testimonials
Definitely take the time in college to study abroad. Find a program that interests you in some way, shape or form and try to dedicate some time before you leave to learn more about the country and language. Once you are there, make sure to branch out and try to get to know the people on your trip; this is not the time to stay in your bubble or to be exclusive.

Program Testimonials
This study abroad was definitely the best three weeks of my life. In Toulouse I learned so many things about France and their food production practices, made so many friends. experienced so many things, and ate some of the best food in the world. Being in Toulouse provided me with a knowledge about agricultural practices in France and how they differ with the practices we have here in the United States.
