A Look Back

* What did you like most about the program?
  • local students
  • classes I took
* What could be improved?
  • laundry expense in Harrow residence halls
  • necessities (kitchen utensils/bedding/etc) that could be provided for international/study abroad students
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? I wish I would've known that I would need to supply things like bedding, kitchen utensils, etc. before getting there because I would've considered those expenses and seen if I could've utilized some space in my suitcase for those kinds of things.
