Brandon Senger, a political science major at UW-Eau Claire, had the opportunity to experience his service-learning while studying abroad in Pau, France. 

Senger served as a mentor to children of refugee families and worked to help them further their French communication skills and societal involvement, describing work with these students as a life-changing experience.
