“This summer I traveled to Jerusalem, Israel and Cairo, Egypt through the KIIS program. I studied the history, politics, and religion of these two amazing cities. I visited the Holy Sepulchre Church, the Western Wall, and the Dome of the Rock. I was able to float in the Dead Sea and visit the markets in the old city of Jerusalem. In Cairo, I visited the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza and the National Museum. I stayed at resort on the Red Sea, and I had the time of my life snorkeling. My favorite part of my experience was meeting so many great people and being immersed in the unique culture!”

– Jacklyn, Israel-Egypt

“The KIIS summer abroad program to Egypt and Israel will be one I never forget. I learned so much through my amazing professors and friends, but most importantly my experiences. One lesson I took away from the trip is that it is way more important to remain present and to put the phone or camera down for a while. Photos may fade, but memories last a lifetime.”

– Addie, Israel & Egypt


“It was the most powerful learning experience of my life!  The perfect blend of authentic experiences, interesting readings, powerful speakers, stunning sites, and deep reflection.”

“I could write a book with how much I learned and experienced while being in this program— the dance, the history, the government, the culture, and all…I worked very hard every waking moment.”
