A Look Back

* What did you like most about the program?
  • Travel Week
  • Location of campus
  • Learning outside of the classroom
* What could be improved?
  • Resources to meet local students outside of the program
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? DIS is specifically for American students to study abroad so there aren't a lot of opportunities to interact with local students outside of the program. At times it feels like we are attending college in the states.
