I know that missing out is a feeling that no one wants to share, but for everyone who decides to skip over Loyola's Vietnam Center, that's what they are doing. This program has four excursions that are other worldly, and they have a staff prepared to
take you on them. The region itself is worth visiting, but Vietnam is worth studying. So much of what is taught about Vietnam is under the radar and it takes the perspective of a Vietnamese to really understand. I fear that people who settle for programs in Europe are following the status quo, but those who study in Asia (and specifically Southeast Asia) are leading the pack in change. On that note alone, I don't think anyone can afford to miss this opportunity!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
