Yes, I recommend this program

Morocco, Spain, & France

This program to Morocco, Spain, & France was a great travel experience. I was able to meet people from all over the world, delve into the different cultures, learn about different religions, and gain knowledge from intelligent professors. The professors were very knowledgeable about the topic areas, and the students were able to build relationships with the professors and the students traveling together. The program was very organized, and it was a good mix of time in a group and time to explore on your own time. I gained a deeper insight on different religions and cultures in another part of the world. I would highly recommend this trip!

What would you improve about this program?
It would be more beneficial to receive more information and an itinerary more time in advance so that the students are able to prepare for the trip. Also, it would be beneficial to see a more descriptive overview of the course, as well as expectations of the course.
