Hello, and welcome to the COMS 239 blog page!
In just two short days 18 students and 2 professors will be boarding a flight to Belize. Throughout our trip we will adventure through the rain forest, lie on sandy beaches, and most importantly, learn how to communicate about the environmental impacts of eco-tourism on Belize as a country.
About the Author
My name is Madeline Craig and it is my job to blog about our adventures through the foreign landscapes of Belize. I am a senior Music and Buisiness double major; however, I am very interested in the environment and adventure. At Luther I participate in a myriad of activities such as Collegiate Chorale, Immersion, Student Activities Council, and PALS. I am also employed at the rock wall and I love to spend my free time bouldering and climbing.
Although there are many things I love about Luther, J-term abroad is my favorite! During my sophomore year I participated in a J-term titled Jews, Judaism, and the Holocaust. Throughout the month of January we visited many Jewish landmarks, multiple concentration camps, and 4 European countries learning about the lives of Jewish people from the Middle Ages to the Holocaust. This trip had a large impact on how I see the world, and although my two study abroad expiriences are bound to be quite different, I am sure this trip to Belize will have just as large an impact on my life.
Stay tuned, we take off in 41 hours, 47 minutes and 13 seconds!
