Photography in the Edge of the Outback is a Must!

My first impression of the program was that it was a course on photography in the outback. Seems very self explanatory right, I mean it is in the title. But the course is so much more than that. For your first week you are in the class room and dive in to the history of Australia and the Aboriginal culture. It is an amazing, rich and heartbreaking history that I felt so ashamed that we did not cover back in the States. The second week you spend out in the backpack going to different reserves with an Aboriginal Guide and he explains the history of the land and all of the significant meanings behind each place. This is where all of the amazing photography in the outback comes in. And then you get to spend your last week editing and printing your photographs to display them in a gallery in Mildura.

It is honestly an experience that brings you and everyone in your group close together making bonds that last a lifetime.

Extraterrestrials

I truly felt like an alien visiting a new planet where I did not speak their language well nor did I understand the culture. After only a month of living in this foreign place, my Spanish speaking ability and love for my host country skyrocketed. Costa Rica is the most beautiful place I have ever been exposed to and I have CIS to thank for that. The host family that took me into their home accepted me, a random American, almost as a son. The home-stay experience is so important since this is where you learn about your new country. CIS made sure I had a place I could truly call home. I really became more immersed in the culture because of them.

Experience of a life time!

I will never forget the experience of a life time that CISabroad and Bond University have given me. I have made the most amazing friendships and was able to explore wonderful places. CISabroad made both the adjustment to Australia, but also home from Australia as smooth as possible. My site director's abroad were amazing, and were so helpful with everything. We became really close with them, and with each other. The excursions provided by CIS were also awesome! AND I should mention our orientation in Sydney. Everyone in CIS Gold Coast that semester (about 18 of us) got together in Sydney for a few days and got to know each other and the amazing country. This whole experience is something I would relive in a second, and I owe it all to CIS and Bond University!!

Challenging and definitely worth it!

At first, before going abroad I started having second guesses about the country I chose to study abroad but after going I am so happy with the choice I made. School was a little challenging just because of how different the system is from my home University. Although, because it was challenging I feel I have grown efficiently in my academics. Taking classes in a different country gives you so many more learning opportunities. During my time abroad I gained a lot of confidence. Being in a new place with new people was refreshing and I learned a lot about myself. Bond University had many social events that allowed students to become more connected with each other and allowed me to meet people from all over the world. Note: Australia is expensive! Save lots of money to enjoy your time here.

Authentic, experiential learning in Perugia

I spent an entire semester in Perugia interning and taking Italian language classes. I had the support of the faculty at both my internship placement and the Umbra Institute, as well as the guidance of a wonderful professor while conducting research. The Italian language courses are challenging and authentic but easily accessible to all students. The community engagement is a highlight of the Perugia program, and they really succeed in doing this well. By learning with Italian students and taking courses with service learning components, you will have a completely immersive experience that is exciting and educational!
