Student Quotes

-From a student on the Semester at Sea Program

"I took a tour through the favelas (slums) in Rio and I was amazed. These
people live in complete poverty . . . It is like their own city within a
city. The houses are stacked on top of each other and are built overnight
with the help of friends. It was a huge eye opener."
