Student Reflections

“I have gained a great amount of knowledge about a historic culture along with the cooking skills to make traditional dishes. I also learned how to socialize with unfamiliar people in a unique setting. This course has exceeded my expectations. I did not expect to become as close as we have as a group. I also did not expect the educational trips to be as interesting and engaging as they were. Studying abroad has been like no other studying I have done.”
Matthew Lanzano - Summer 2017
