Join EASI!

"[I joined EASI because] I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and wanted to help prospective students learn more about the process of going abroad and share my experiences.  I enjoyed being able to "live" in another country with a whole different set of cultures and being able to make new friends from all over the world. The friends you make on that trip, and the experiences you make on that trip is something that you will remember forever."
