“Living in Russia has been such an amazing experience. Russia has always been a land relatively unknown to citizens of the USA. My eyes have been opened to the beauty of the culture, the hospitality of the people and the riches of the History. Our study abroad program was organized and run by talented professors who discussed current issues from a neutral perspective. They never tried to sway our opinions. They allowed us to formulate our own opinions and come to our own conclusions. I am astounded by the program and the professors.” Aaron Carlson
"It is hard to conclude the experiences of my trip to Russia and the participation in the Summer School in only a few sentences – but it’s worth a try: Young dynamic teachers taught us Russian in small groups of 4 students – Effective! Lectures on Russian Mentality filled with lots of discussions on our own experiences – Interesting! Discussions with businessmen about their experiences with the Administration, Russian business partners and employees – Exciting! All in all, this summer school was awesome! Tatiana and her team organized an extra trip after we asked them to. This showed their great motivation to account for all our wishes. Thank you all for this great experience." Johannes Söbbeler
