Tangibly, I learned very much about renewable energy and the environment. The intangibles were equally or more valuable, however. I gained confidence in myself, a greater appreciation for the outdoors, and a renewed sense of adventure. This program was definitely worthwhile. - Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University View Entire Review

It was really special to have something in common with a very large group of people. It was a bree... - University of Southern California View Entire Review
