"YYGS not only did satisfy, but it exceeded my scientific cravings. Instructors were as eager as we were to share their knowledge and expertise and cover every area our curiosity probes."

"This experience has influenced me in various ways. I found out that diversity is the perfect way to understand the world, respecting others and being able to hear their opinions which are different from your own."
