"My decision to travel with Park's England 2014 study abroad program with Professor Jenkins was one of the best decisions I've ever made! I was an adult student and I was worried that it wouldn't be for me, however I was able to experience things I could never do as a tourist on my own and I forged a bond with my fellow students in a way that never happened in the classroom. I feel that I came back a more globally minded person. I would recommend this study abroad trip to any Park University student of any age."
