Easton Davis’s Experience at HULA

Vanessa Goff’s Experience at HUE

What made you decide to participate in the HUE program?  During my sophomore year I had a dream that I was standing outside of an English tudor-style house surrounded by pink roses.

Rachel Dixon’s Experience at HUE

For starters, the group tends to be smaller and more intimate; I really wanted to get to know the people I would be traveling with. I’m also a history nerd.

Rachel Williams’s Experience at HUF

What was it like attending HUF?  Every day at HUF felt like a dream. I would wake up each morning, look out the window at the Tuscan hills, and ask myself, “Is this real life? Am I really living here? Is this actually my life right now?” Nothing feels real and time flies, so soak up every second! What was it like living in Italy?

Landon Lipp’s Experience at HUF

What was it like attending HUF?  It is surreal the entire time you are there. For example, the villa was always a 30 min trip from the Duomo… the Duomo! It is one of the greatest architectural feats ever, and we were just a tram ride away from it. What was it like living in Italy?  The Italian life is very calm and peaceful. We

What made you decide to participate in the HUA program? When I was looking at colleges my senior year of high school, Harding University grabbed my attention because of a video posted by a previous HUA student. After watching people bungee jump from a crazy height, snorkel in the great barrier reef, tour Angkor Wat, bathe elephants, and see Mount Fuji I realized I wanted

Ryann Heim’s Experience at HUA

What made you decide to participate in the HUA program? I decided to do the Australasia program after learning about all of the exciting activities you have the opportunity to do on the trip! I also thought “When else will I have the opportunity to travel to Australia, New Zealand, and Asia?” Joke’s on me, because I’m ready to go back right now! What was
