|Samantha Lynn McDonald, Fall 2014 Participant|
|Words simply cannot describe how amazing Scotland and Stirling were. The University was great, along with the student body, and housing. Stirling itself was easy to get around and figure out, but if you happen to be lost or need assistance, a local was always there to help you and very kind about it all as well. I would go back in a heart beat. I loved the University and the city of Stirling. The people, culture, and atmosphere are something that I will never forget. I wish I never would have left.|
