The new community and global health concentration is fast becoming popular with students. So is taking a term abroad to further explore that subject. Here are the stories of three students who did.
Jonathan Chen in Australia
I spent four months last spring studying in Sydney, Australia. I enrolled in the University of Sydney, which immersed me in Australian culture and the Australian “uni” (university) experience.
Kaitlyn Arctander in Russia
I spent the summer working as a volunteer at a children’s camp in the Russian countryside. I taught English classes and worked as a counselor at a camp called Computeria—a technology camp.
Beth Moretzsky in Denmark
In Summer 2010 I traveled to Copenhagen to take a course in cross-cultural psychology with the Danish Institute for Study Abroad.
In the Philippines
Two months ago, I completed my study abroad in Nanjing, China. Since then, I have spent time in the Philippines working on an island where the most important industry is sugarcane and sugar. I have been volunteering on a small farm.
Allison Jacobel in New Zealand
Returning to New Zealand had been a dream of mine since I first fell in love with the country when I visited with my family in 1997. So when the opportunity presented itself for me to study abroad, the country was an obvious first choice. As a geology major with a minor in environmental studies, I knew New Zealand’s diverse landscapes would provide the perfect setting in which to continue my studies and indulge in my love of backpacking (or tramping as it’s called in NZ).
I spent four months studying with the Arcadia Center for East African Studies in Arusha, Tanzania
