SAF's Student Promise
“Near Montana, there are the natural wonders of Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Local friends suggested camping, and during summer vacation, I went to those two national parks with local friends several times, and it was a really enjoyable experience.”Daehyuk Ha, Past SAF Student
