SESP 2019
Hi! I am Ruthie, a junior studying Learning Sciences and Global Health. I studied abroad in Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina the Summer of 2017. I absolutely loved my experience abroad, the classes were really interesting and relevant to mental health debates we are having back home and the people we met were open and friendly. It was great to learn about a place I didn't know much about.

WCAS 2018

Hi! My name is Colin Wang and I am a senior Neuroscience major and Global Health Studies minor from Boston, MA. Last summer, I participated in the Comparative Public Health in Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina program and it was one of the most humbling and rewarding experiences of my life. I was able to learn so much, not only inside the classroom about the history and public health structures of Serbia and BiH, but also as I lived my day-to-day life talking to taxi drivers in Belgrade or walking through the hills and alleyways of Sarajevo. My time abroad solidified my interest in community and preventive medicine. I am excited to use the skills and perspectives I gained in Serbia and BiH to help me in my life and future career, and I can't wait to share my experiences with others!

Hi! I'm Cassie Majewski, a 3rd-year studying journalism with a global health studies adjunct major. This past summer I went on the Comparative Public Health program in Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. This was the most enlightening Northwestern experience I've had yet, and has permanently shaped the direction I'm going in career and general life. Please don't hesitate to reach out about the program - I am more than willing to talk about my experience!
