Past program experiences

"Stacy was so friendly!! She made everything enjoyable and made sure I was comfortable. She made me feel included with her group of friends and anything we did together. I couldn't have asked for a better host. We are planning on staying in touch."

"She treated me like I was a friend, not just like I was a complete stranger. We shared stories and we really got to know each other. She took me to the places on campus that I really wanted to see. She was also very insightful about the campus and the school itself."
