“I have grown, I have experienced, I have adventured, I have learned”

"Taking this step to study abroad in Lithuania is one I will never forget. I have grown, I have experienced, I have adventured, I have learned, I have tried and failed. Through it all, I have seen God’s sovereignty in so many amazing ways. Whether it was playing on the basketball team, studying in the classroom, or just spending time with the incredible people on this campus, God’s light has shone. He has blessed me with this improbable semester and I will forever remember how I have been changed."

Living in Klaipėda

You will have no difficulties finding your way around town and enjoying local culture. Over 80% of youth and many of the older generation speak English.

Students live in a tight on-campus community among other international students. While traveling we take all necessary precautions:

  • If students travel with the group, we have teams and procedures to oversee all excursions.
  • If students travel on their own, we keep travel information and contact numbers to know where they are.

Communication
