Jayde A Sherron, Spring 2016 Participant
I absolutely loved my program in Pau! I had the time of my life and met some lifelong friends there! I never knew the little town of Pau even existed before applying to this program and now I dream about it all the time. I'm so glad I went to Pau rather than a large city like Paris with lots of tourists, in a city like this one you can really get yourself immersed into the target culture. The USAC staff was also very helpful in getting all of us situated once we arrived in Pau and throughout our stay they were happy to answer any questions that we had. I would do it all over again if I could.
