"The Chile trip was an amazing experience because I got to see what life was like outside of the United States. As a result, I have grown into a person who has a broader perspective of the world around her."

"This trip is a once in a lifetime experience. It’s much more than a service trip, it’s a chance to build lasting friendships with people you will see around campus. It is also a very good cultural experience… Interacting with the local and members of the YMCA and also Julie and Francisco's family. After this trip, I can promise you that Chile will become a small part of who you are and how you look at things. I can also promise you that the feeling you feel after this trip is indescribable, but you won't be disappointed."
