    • Bucknell Her Campus Writer Thoughts: “If you love the warm Caribbean weather, going to the beach, and are interested in exploring a different economic system, this experience is perfect for you. We stayed at a hotel where we would have two lectures a day and always went to the beach right after. After the first few lecture classes, the lectures were mostly done by a variety of guest speakers that covered things such as how the Caribbean countries significantly grew, Rastafari culture, and the Caribbean education system. The workload included a few readings followed by short quizzes towards the beginning, a take home exam towards the end, and a research paper following the trip. Some excursions included taste-testing rum, trying sugar through its different steps in its process (sugar cane, molasses), and hiking. One of my favorite parts of the trip was visiting an elementary school; the kids and I would sing famous hits like “Old Town Road,” and they loved showing off their dance moves.”

    • Class: Social Entrepreneurship and Community Development (MGMT, PSYC, ECON, or IP)

    • Fulfills: Global Connections, Engineering Global and Societal Perspectives, Social Science, Engineering Social Science

    • Bucknell Her Campus Writer Thoughts: “The best kind of person to go on this trip with is someone who is open minded, compassionate and adventurous. The culture in South Africa is very different and can be a bit of a shock as the people are a lot more lax and do things the “African” way. Some of the excursions include shark cage diving and hikes. Half of the workload is class and the other half is an internship. Most of the classwork is completed before leaving for South Africa and there is a paper due on the plane. The classes are mostly lectures and the internship involves making a business plan that helps local businesses and involves a lot of creativity. I think the best part is really just getting to sit down and talk to local people as you learn so much about their experiences that helps you to appreciate everything you have and be more compassionate to other realms of life.”
