"The Washburn study abroad program was a chance for me to live, study, and soak up the majestic island of Barbados. Of course the beaches were breathtaking but I was astonished by the people, history, and culture of this Caribbean gem. Barbados was hands down my best decision since starting law school. Some of the highlights from my time in Barbados were one-on-one time with professors, dynamic classroom discussions with the U.W.I. students, lifetime friendships, and personal development." - Jorden Ryan, '13
