We are excited to host three different programs for the upcoming study abroad season. Come see what our students will be up to!


Nicaragua Spring Medical Program

Dr. Patrick Hickey will lead students on his annual excursion to the rural Nicaraguan community of Masaya, bringing healthcare to the people in their homes and clinics. Students will fly to Managua, Nicaragua, and spend seven days assisting doctors and nurses with patient histories, diagnoses and medications. Daily service will be followed by evening classes on such topics as medical Spanish, tropical diseases and how to suture or administer injections. Students will also have a free day to enjoy Nicaragua, zip-lining, hiking or simply shopping and enjoying the local culture.

Join Dr. Daniella Cook and Cassie Davis as they serve the Working Boys Center in capital city of Quito, Ecuador. This two-week course will focus on social justice, global poverty, and equity as students help the Working Boys Center achieve its goal of providing education, food, housing, and health care to community members. Additionally, we will spend time enjoying the beauty of Ecuador by exploring the Andes Mountains, the Mindo Cloud Forest and the Galapagos Islands.

Join Dr. James Kirylo and Katie Zimmerle as they head off to Greece on this two-week course. Starting in Athens, they will explore the most iconic spots in all of Greece while studying the foundations of western philosophy in education. Next, the group will travel off the beaten path to the neighboring islands of Santorini and Malta to enjoy the beauty of these countries through excursions such as hiking, cave kayaking, and snorkeling, not to mention a sunset donkey ride!
