The Semester in Scotland program was life changing and a dream come true. I had dreamed of doing the program ever since I went to visit Scotland the summer before my sister did the program. Ten years later, I was so excited when I was finally able to go! I learned so, so much about the doctrines of the RP church and it helped me establish a firm foundation for my beliefs and answered the many questions that I had. The tours of Scotland were also very edifying, teaching me of the history of Scotland and of the Covenanters. I loved every bit of my time in Scotland with this program and wish that I could do it again. There is always so much to learn and this was my favorite place and way to learn it! I will never forget my many amazing adventures, and Scotland will always hold a special place in my heart.
