Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I feel that the work load and lecture that was provide before travel and during was a sufficient amount. I would say that I felt very prepared and comfortable during my travels.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Some strengths were that there was a variety of information being offered to the students. Which allowed use to incorporate different degree options into our individual studies. So weaknesses of the trip i would say, more exposure to the people of the country,

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

I was very comfortable.

* Food:

it was exciting to try new foods.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

My most memorable would be the field trips such as the Bomas of Kenya, and the Nirobi museum. The students that were with us from Kenya had never been and they were just as excited as we were.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

I feel that the health issues were address accurately and continuously through out the trip.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)


If applicable, to what degree did your living situation aid your language acquisition?
