Derric Jamal Fray, Maymester 2017 Participant
This was by far the best trip I've EVER been on in my life. I would not have traded a single moment for anything else. The knowledge I gained both in the classroom and outside was truly helpful with my personal growth and educational development. I honestly grateful that I attended this trip.

Maymester 2017 Participant
Anyone and everyone should take the opportunity to go abroad if they can... it was the experience of a lifetime. It's the best way to really get to know a place and its culture.

Maymester 2017 Participant
Terry in Europe was one of the best experiences of my college career. I learned so much about culture, international business, and myself!

Testimonial:
Definitely consider this! It was a tremendous look outside the bubble that is the US. It was great to be embedded into hundreds of years of culture. Not to mention the safety feeling that was there. I originally expected to be on my toes, but was taken back when i saw the ease of travel around the city.
