Not Your Average Fall Break

“The trip was one I would never think to take on my own, but I am infinitely glad I was able to go. Poland was absolutely beautiful, not only the sights but the strength and pride of the people. I was deeply moved by the history with the Holocaust and Auschwitz. It was something I could relate to in my own cultural experiences. I also really enjoyed the symposium. It was enlightening to hear so many opinions of people who experience the effects of genocide every day, and I appreciated that they had speakers from opposing viewpoints. It was so interesting and educational and really inspired me as many of those leading the symposium are pursing the work I want to do in the future.” - Karisma Wilson (Global and International Studies & Anthropology LUC 2018), Ricci Scholar
