Student Quotes

-From a student on Semester at Sea

In answer to the question: What was the most interesting experience you
have had so far?
". . . One was learning about Gandhi and the Indian Nationalist Movement in
the home of one of the members of the movement who had met Gandhi at the
age of 14. Another was paddling a canoe down the Mekong River Delta of
Vietnam. The children are wonderful in every country."
