I think academically/Arabic-wise it was a good choice for me. I learned a lot from my elective courses - about new forms of research, about honest perspectives on the Middle East and its current issues, about Jordanian society.

I learned that the people of Jordan and the surrounding areas are incredibly welcoming and diverse. These people have a different religion, speak a different language, and live across the world from me, but we are not that different from each other. - The College of New Jersey View Entire Review

The trip was worthwhile. I taught me a lot about another culture, the problems faced by people in that area of the world, and just how much news were are shielded from as Americans.

This program will stick with me and many of my decisi... - Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Prescott campus View Entire Review
Yes, I would do it over and over again if I could afford it. I wish it was longer or never ended. I fell in love with Israel and Jordan and neither I nor none of my group wanted to leave. - Carroll College View Entire Review
