Discovery. Passion. Purpose.

"I was able to meet and live with people who had the same passions as I did and we pushed each other to do better. We bounced ideas off each other, corrected each other's work, made memories, and formed bonds I will never forget. I still talk to most of them today."

-Sara Lighthart, Summer 2018 and Summer 2019
