Social identity & access

One of the best things you can do before departure is enter into the journey knowing that your time abroad will be unique to this experience. The resources, community and support available to you when abroad will likely be different as well. In order to help you prepare for your experience, we have compiled many resources about social identity and access in specific locations abroad. Your program staff will also provide you with more details pre-departure and during orientation.

It was hands down the best decision I have ever made. I am pretty sure I could not have been any farther away from home, but knowing that was exciting and exhilarating, not so much scary. I did the program through Fiji as well. That was a fabulous week. I loved my family over there and they were so great to us. Once in Australia, life was great. The weather was warm, the people were so friendly and the friends I made are some I will keep with me for the rest of my life.

Staying with a host family in Fiji is the experience of a lifetime. I got to try so many different foods and they took me out to meet their Fijian friends. Fiji is gorgeous!
