Being black in Mexico

This program did a wonderful job of showing its students the reality of Mexican culture. With that said I feel that this program needs to address issues regarding anti-blackness in Mexico and even within the program. There were multiple racial incidence inside and outside the program and the lack of discussion and effort towards these issues is and was very disheartening for the black students in the program. If Augsburg College wants more students of color- specifically black students- to study abroad there needs to be more action and discussion in place when these situations occur.

My study abroad experience

There are a lot of things that need to be addressed. One of those things being communication style, respect, racism, and many more. Luckily there were some super supportive staff but I hope things will.

Southern Africa experience

I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity to have gone on this incredible journey, stay with three incredible host families, travel throughout two different countries, and learn in completely new ways from professors, speakers, experiences, and by looking at what I've learned in the past with a new perspective.

Central America spring 2017

CGEE is a wonderful program if you are looking for an intimate and immersive experience. The program is rigorous, but it is planned so that you gain a lot of knowledge inside and outside the classroom.
