From the Midwest to the Mediterranean!

For the over two-thirds of Luther students who study off campus during their four years here, the world will never look the same again. Off-campus study is a life-changing experience, resulting in broadened perspectives, unforgettable memories, and a more comprehensive and nuanced view of the world.

Several Luther students pursue in-depth and immersive study by participating in semester and year-long programs off campus. These blogs are meant to help friends, family, and future Norse experience life alongside our students around the globe.

Welcome to the Malta and the Mediterranean 2017 spring semester blog! My name is Senia Sikkink and I am currently a Junior pursuing an interdisciplinary major in Human-Animal Studies. I am from Decorah, Iowa and, although I have not yet been to Europe, I have skipped around the world before as I spent a year in Dubai and Egypt when I was 10 years old. I'm excited to visit so many different countries in the Mediterranean including Malta, Italy, Croatia, Morocco, and more!

I've always loved to travel and I can't wait to immerse myself into the culture of Malta along with fellow Luther students. While attending the University of Malta, we will learn about the history of Malta as well as participate in a Service Learning of our choice. Aligning with my major of Human-Animal Studies, I hope to volunteer with an animal rescue program in Malta. 

Thank you for joining me on this journey as I prepare for departure! I'll talk to y'all when I arrive in Malta!

As you can tell, I love animals.
