“The Wells College program in Dakar was challenging because the culture is so different, but this is what I really loved about the program. I learned so much about myself while I was in Dakar and that really changed my plans for my future. I'd recommend this program to anyone interested in country development, women's issues, and so many more topics of interest we don't get to encounter firsthand in the U.S. I'd absolutely recommend this program to other students because this program taught me a lot about myself I never knew.” —S.N., Wells College
