The Experiment is fortunate to have an excellent network of student and parent alumni, known as “Experiment Ambassadors,” who are available to speak with prospective and admitted participants. Topics range from program selection, pre-departure preparation, the homestay experience, and group composition. The Experiment Ambassadors are outstanding resources for students contemplating a summer abroad, newly enrolled students, and prospective parents.
We urge prospective applicants and their parents to contact these wonderful volunteers. Alumni contacts are available via e-mail and have generally participated, or have children who have participated, in the program within the previous two years.
Please keep in mind, however, that program itineraries, group excursions, and other program components can vary depending on the summer; each alumni ambassador speaks from their own unique experience. While past participants and their parents usually offer exceptional insight and advice, we ask that you contact The Experiment staff for the facts and guarantees pertaining to current programs.
We do not yet have contacts for all programs, but new Experiment Ambassadors are continually being added. In the meantime, if you wish to contact alumni from a program not listed, please contact our admissions office at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll be happy to arrange a contact for you.
