Semester on the Subcontinent

Shocked. India completely shocked me. I never could have imagined anything like it, being it was my first visit to a developing nation. From the moment I stepped off the plane and into the airport I knew I was in for an adventure.

The program did a great job easing students into the culture with a 10-day south India tour. Accommodation was provided on campus at the 'foreign student hostel' which had aircon, a cleaning staff, a full kitchen, internet access, and a washing machine for clothes. Meals were delivered to the hostel as well. Any issues could be brought to the attention of the university support person or the program director himself, Dr. Sunny Luke, who was in-country. These two individuals were more than accommodating working with Western students and the struggles we experienced.

If you're looking for an experience that will most certainly change your perspective, your life, I highly recommend the Semester in India program!
