Quotes

Wake Forest students reflect on their participation in CCE courses:

“I participated in the Cross Cultural Engagement courses to gain support before, during and after my time in Florence. This program forced me to think outside my comfort zone and to truly expand my horizons. I found [INS 152] to be most helpful, as it gave me the opportunity to process everything I had experienced during the previous semester in Italy. Without this course, I probably would not have realized the true magnitude of my experience and personal growth.” Jenna, studied in Italy during Fall 2008
“Coming back from abroad was more difficult than I thought. The INS 152 course allowed me to share experiences and reflect on them in a comfortable atmosphere. It also helped to hear the different issues other students were facing and to work through them together. Through this course, I was able to wrap up my study abroad experience in a positive way and to learn how to continue using the things I had learned in the future.” Virginia, studied in France during Fall 2009
“After retuning from a four month study abroad experience in Cameroon, the INS 152 class truly helped me to readjust to American life and reflect on my life changing experience in Central Africa. The relaxed classroom atmosphere facilitated stimulating class discussion in which I was able to share my own experiences and learn from my classmates’ experiences. Most importantly, the INS 152 course helped me to find ways to stay connected to the Cameroonian culture.” Laura, studied in Cameroon during Fall 2009
