Student Reflections 

“These past two weeks have provided myself with a lifetime of knowledge, as well as memories to last forever. Looking back on what I wrote as my expectations, I stated how I just wanted to have a great time. I can 100% say that my expectations have been filled and beyond. What made this all possible was the structure and design of the class. Every day was filed with a new adventure or a new destination. So sad to go home!”
Catherine Saunders - Summer 2017
