Hakuna Matata

I really enjoyed my time at this program. We spent most of our time in the field as most of our classes were done on safari or interviewing local people. We would take take the knowledge we learned in lectures and apply it to the field. This program was science intensive, but very doable for students coming from other majors. Professors were knowledgeable and passionate about the topics they were teaching. There was only one course on cultural immersion, since it was mostly science based. One course allowed for learning Swahili along with a one day home stay and visits to the different local tribes of the area. Each day was constant learning and new experiences that forced me to lived in the moment to try to take in all that this country had to offer.
