Overall Experience
Not only did I come out of the program with a research project that is now turned into a 150-page honors thesis for my undergrad, I also made life-long friends, and established academic mentorship that I know will help me through my academic and professional career. - Kenyon College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with SIT Study Abroad: Ghana: Africa in the 21st Century
December 06, 2019 Life Changing Experience
Ghana's hospitality is unmatched and this made all the difference in my experience. People were really kind and they truly cared about my well-being. I am going to take this type of hospitality and incorporate it into my own life. This is a life lesson that will stay with me for the rest of my life. - St. Edward's University View Entire Review
Among many other things, I believe that my ability to understand others has grown significantly. The many well-rounded experiences have prepared me to work in diverse environments as well as with a diverse group of people. - Colgate University View Entire Review
