Augsburg's study abroad program in Namibia is a unique experience. You get to learn in a hands-on way from local people. This includes trips to museums, monuments, and across the country. The staff is incredible! It is not a full cultural experience since you are living in a house with Americans, but it is what you make of it. You can learn and see a lot on this trip.

This program was immersive, insightful, and beyond anything that I could have expected. It challenged me in a variety of ways, and has aided in both my academic and personal life. I strongly recommend this program to anyone who wants to broaden their horizons, and challenge the status quo in which they live their lives.
An incredible experience in Namibia

My time at CGEE was incredible. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I learned so much from all of the staff. The home stays made the experience truly unique and helped you get a real idea of what it is like to live in a place that is so different than home. CGEE takes care of all housing and meals which gives you time to focus on learning the culture and exploring Windhoek. The trips they have planned are great and make sure that you stay busy and see as much of Namibia as possible. Not only that, they give you a lot of freedom to travel independently if you chose. It is hard to describe what an extraordinary experience CGEE Namibia is but I truly believe you cannot find a study abroad program like it. The courses are completely focused on experience which means the professors bring in outside speakers that give you so much more insight into the politics and history of the country. If you are looking for a non-traditional study abroad program, CGEE is the place to look.

Studying abroad in Namibia and South Africa provided me friends, family, and experiences that I will never forget! The CGEE Southern Africa program teaches you about present-day issues that you can't just read about. CGEE puts a large emphasis on experiential learning that really brings your time abroad and education focuses together to ensure you have meaningful time abroad. Plus Southern Africa is an amazing place with so much to see and do! Get out of your comfort zone and study with CGEE!

It is obvious that the administrators of this program really care about their students, academically and personally. This is an immersive experience, focusing on learning from and with communities and I certainly have done that and I am better for it. At many times this program was difficult, but I had the support I needed to be successful. I am going back to my home university with new knowledge and a new perspective on what learning can be.
