“I had an amazing experience." Stacey M Craighead
“It was a great experience. I had the opportunity to understand the social issues as well as business environment, allowing me to walk away with a greater appreciation for the Middle East. It was great to not only visit companies, but to site see and interact with the natives as well. I never felt unsafe, even when walking within a small group of friends. I highly recommend this trip to other students.” Christie Deskiewicz
