Closing Thoughts

These trips continue to provide our students with invaluable learning experiences unrivaled by any school or program anywhere, and, as noted by colleagues and stakeholders worldwide, are WNE’s signature academic offering.
--Dr. Dan Covell

I could hardly believe that I was actually in attendance at events of the Olympic Games; it was surreal…and the best 11 days of my life!

--Paul Harris

This Seminar Abroad influenced my perspective on sport, especially the value and importance of sports beyond the “Big Four.”  Also, I’ve seen how sport can unify people around the world.

--Chelsea Johnson

It was an amazing experience to go to the Olympics that will forever be a great memory in my life, and I cannot wait to tell my story for years to come.

--Tyler Kasuba

The cultural contrasts between Brazil and the U.S. forced me to step out of my comfort zone, which I did and I can honestly say for the better.

--Kevin McLaughlin

Everything was amazing and incredible.  It is hard to explain, but I feel like a new person through this experience.

--Emily Painter

Because of this trip, I am now a fan of table tennis, fencing, and rowing; three sports that I never in my life thought that I would appreciate and enjoy.

--Jeremy Proto

Every day was filled with a brand new experience, and I will never have another trip this packed with adventure and excitement.

--Francesco Siniscalchi

Every day was packed with fun-filled activities and I would not want it to be any other way; also, being able to make a difference in the favela was something that I will never forget!

--Erika Sheinhait

I saw and learned so much in the 11 days we spent in Rio; from learning Portuguese and interacting with children in the favela to attending events, I had the time of my life!

--Rickie Rizos

I got to see the best athletes in the world perform at one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world.

--Ryan Smith

It was incredible to attend my first Olympics, which I watched on television previously.  To actually be there physically, though, is a moment that I will never forget.

--Michael Spratt

This Seminar Abroad went above and beyond my expectations time and time again with just how amazing every moment was.

--Paul St. Pierre
