    • Mombasa Bubbles

    • New York Center for Art & Media Studies (NYCAMS)

    • Academic Programs International (API)

    • Ni'a Cubana

    • Latin American Studies Program (LASP)

    • Shining with the Setting Sun

    • Japan Travel Writing
    • After hiking for most of the day and still having a ways to go before my friends and I could rest we stumbled upon a shrine tucked away in the mountains. Low on motivation and beginning to regret our decision to go hiking on one of the few free...

    • Assos

    • Greece and Turkey Study Tour
    • The harbor of Assos is a place Paul stopped on his missionary journeys. An image like this is one that only God could create. He literally took my breath away and I was speechless. This is proof to me that God exists. God's work in the isn't a...
    • Window of Despair

    • Upper Midwest Association for Intercultural Education (UMAIE)
    • The Day we visited Majdanek was very dreary and rainy. It was the type of weather that chilled you to the bone. This picture was taken in the corridor right outside the gas chambers where Zycolne B was used to kill an estimated 3,000 people. The...
    • Feed the Birds

    • Spain Term
    • San Marco’s Square is infested with pigeons. Everywhere you step, you run the risk of being squawked at. And the, instead of shooing them away, you pay € 1 for birdfeed and invite them to climb all over you! Betsy (pictured) and I could have fed...
