Review

I learned a lot while abroad, focusing on race helped me better understand how I perpetuate white privilege which was valuable. I met a lot of wonderful people and had good conversations about the program and South Africa. The academic part of the program was less rigorous than I had expected and I wish I had known how much SIT would run my life while abroad. However, there was also a large lack of information and structure which was frustrating as I never really knew what was expected of me and it felt like I was sitting around doing nothing a large percentage of the time.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
