Maymester 2017 Participant
Great educational components of the trip! Workload was very manageable and tied into our travels.

Jacob Alan Brown, Maymester 2017 Participant
Definitely recommend this trip for any Terry student looking to study abroad.

Maymester 2017 Participant
Incredible month, incredible teachers, incredible students, and a great program overall.

After going on the trip, I am much more committed to finding a career with an international component. There is so much to be gained from people with entirely different backgrounds than yourself.
