"The idea of travelling in a group with a planned itinerary, with the opportunity to travel on my own as well, was something that really appealed to me since it was one less stressful item to plan. It not only was a great thing to do over Reading Break while gaining school credits and cross-cultural experience, but it also helped me get out of my comfort zone and realize that I want to travel more.”
-Jonny Buffone, BBA student
