" During spring break, we traveled to Dingle, Ireland to explore the Irish history and culture as well as attend several amazing lectures about healthcare and OT in Ireland.  Our days were packed full of wonderful experiences exploring the beautiful country." - Courtney, Inter-professional Experience Spring Break to Dingle, Ireland 2019

 

"This experience, much like my DR mission trip, was life changing, but in a different way.  Being able to meet students from another country that share the same passion as I was so exciting.  Even with the language barrier it was evident that the students truly love what they are doing." - Hayley, Haiti 2018

 

"This trip helped me get out of my comfort zone and exposed me to a way of life I had never experienced before.  I was able to learn so much about the Dominican culture, medical practice, and occupational therapy in general, which has helped shape my view on the profession and what I may want to do in the future.  I am so grateful for the time I spent furthering my education in the Dominican Republic, and the chance to make a difference in the lives of patients we encountered." -Taylor, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic 2019

 

"I have created new friendships and partnerships that will hopefully continue with the beginnings of this program.  I was able to experience a culture that is far from American culture.  I want to live my life differently than the fast-paced culture that I am used to and ask more questions about the way that we live our lives." - Arielle, China 2017

 

"There is no one word to describe my experience in Spain.  It was a once in a lifetime trip where seven students went and didn't know each other before and now we are close.  I could not imagine what I would have missed out on if I did not take this opportunity.  It was worth everything to go on this trip to experience Spain." - Katlyn, Spain 2019
