Student Quotes

From a student studying in Tasmania, Australia:

"I saw the Southern Lights - Aurora Australis - for the first time and they
were amazing. Red and green bands flashing in the sky and fading and
merging with the clouds. The next night there was a lunar eclipse and that
was equally breathtaking."

From a student studying in Salamanca, Spain:

"Life here is so simple! There are very few "rules", yet everyone seems to
know what is normal Spaniard behavior and what is American behavior. This
society places so much emphasis on what is truly important - friends,
family, smiles, love, relaxation . . ."

From a student studying in Jerusalem, Israel:

"We took an organized trip to the Massadah - which is a mountain in the
desert full of centuries worth of Jewish history. We camped out in the
desert and woke up at 4 a.m. to hike up Massadah in time to see the sun
rise over the Dead Sea. It was beautiful."
