Incredible adventure around the globe

I gained a great new group of friends, a hugely broadened perspective, experiential knowledge based in three different countries and regions, and a host of amazing new experiences. Be prepared to be busy, but you'll look back and wish you had done still more. I learned so much from living and studying in three different countries, and had a great time too. This is not an easy or typical study abroad, but if you want to immerse yourself in places that are different, learn to thrive in discomfort, or just see a huge amount of beautiful, amazing places, this is a fantastic program. I learned and thought a lot about both large world systems and grassroots approaches to solving every type of problem. Probably the most fun and educational semester of my college career.

What would you improve about this program?
I went on the first iteration of IHP SEN, so there were some academic and staffing issues that have since been changed.
