Student Comments 2011
Visiting Amsterdam was rejuvenating, eye opening and motivating. It was rejuvenating in that it reaffirmed my desire to be a public servant; eye opening in that I was able to observe and experience what progressive policies can accomplish, such as eliminating homelessness; and motivating in that it strengthened my devotion to strive to be an agent of social change.
–Denise Garcia

Student Comments 2009
"My trip to Ghana has changed my views, thoughts, and beliefs.  I feel more tolerant, cultured, and possess a yearning to travel again and soon to interact with the surrounding nations to be able to benefit from others" - Sean Chavez
