Students and faculty travel to Peru for UNIV 4000

Four GSW students and two faculty members recently traveled to La Florida, Peru as part of the Spring 2018 UNIV 4000 course, a 3-credit-hour Study Abroad Service Learning class. The program was led by Catalina Casaru, Ph.D., and Nedialka Iordanova, Ph.D. The class is a partnership between GSW and The Fuller Center for Housing and is designed to introduce students to international cultures by face to face lectures and by helping build homes for less privileged people in different countries as the study abroad component. This year’s study abroad group was able to help with the build a house in La Florida, Peru. They also went white water rafting and toured the country by vising Lunahuana, Iquitos, Cerro Azul, the capital Lima, and the Amazon Rain Forest.

Nursing students travel to Jamaica over Spring Break

GSW nursing students and faculty spent their Spring Break volunteering. The group traveled to Jamaica during the week-long break, touring local hospitals, including the Cornwall Regional Public Hospital and Hospiten Private Hospital, and completing service learning projects at Melody House Home for Girls (ages 14 to 20 years), the Jamaican Christian School for the Deaf (kindergarten through 12th grade), Garland Hall Orphanage (ages 6 to 18 years), St. James Infirmary (a nursing home for men and women), and the Rastafari Indigenous Village.

“My favorite part of the trip was touring different hospitals in Jamaica and comparing them to hospitals in the U.S.,” said nursing major Anna Bryant. “I have been on similar trips before, but this was my first academic study abroad trip. I choose to go to Jamaica to see how their culture and beliefs effect healthcare and how this is similar/different to our health care system in America. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the beautiful country of Jamaica.”

Nursing students who went on the trip later discussed their experiences in Jamaica at a “Windows to the World” event on April 5.
