Additional Culture Details

Everyone is different. Students experience personal growth when they are offered unique and individualized programs, because no two individuals have the exact same needs.
People learn best by doing. Academic instruction is not enough. By living in on-site apartments, and experiencing all that the city has to offer, people are better equipped to live independently.
