I would recommend that there are more scheduled evening events to help us immerse in the culture through theater, arts, music, and sports.

I would honestly like this program to be longer... HA. But, if I had to be honest and say something productive, it would be to have a little more engaging material in some of the lectures. Some of my favorite class days was when we went on mini excursions because I learned the most from those days. Granted, I am a hands-on learner, but I think those experiences are very valuable. Guest speakers were nice, but it would be nicer to travel to them instead of them traveling to us!

Not at all! I believe that the trip could not be any better than it was!
