"I truly have come to believe that studying abroad is one of the best experiences you could have in college. The Service Learning of the Diers Program is impactful both personally and professionally. Through the program I'm able to take all of the skills and components we learn about in class and apply them directly to people I work with. It's like taking all you've learned in education thus far and then getting out in the world and doing it! I work with families, children, and adults of all different cultures and backgrounds and help provide services that they are very much in need of. I interact with people from all over the world (immigrants, refugees) on almost a daily basis and am able to help make the little differences in their lives that really matter."
