“The program met and went beyond most of my expectations! The components that most met my expectations and exceeded them were the language courses, field trips, tutoring, host family experience and post-program event in Jakarta. The only part that didn’t quite meet expectations was the volunteer opportunity.”
– Mia Cordes, 2019 Summer Studies Participant
