What the participants said:

KJSE was really one of the best experiences I've ever had, and the best foreign summer program that I have attended.

This has been a wonderful three weeks and I have enjoyed myself! The programs were well planned and everything was efficient.

Programs are well organized and the itinerary is very packed.
