Students in UNIV 4000 study abroad in Nepal

Kailash Ghimire, Professor of Mathematics, and Keaton Wynn, Professor of Fine Arts, recently embarked on a study abroad trip to Nepal with eight GSW students for UNIV 4000: Service-Learning during the Spring 2020 winter-intersession (January 1-17). Over the course of two weeks, students participated in service-based activities, including a rebuild of a school near Kathmandu that was destroyed by an earthquake in 2015 and memorable visits to UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu, as well as Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha (pictured). The group visited and worked closely with students from Apex College (pictured). Students and faculty also were treated to the natural beauty of Nepal, including witnessing a sunrise on the Himalaya Mountains (pictured) and a river canoe trip.

Student participants included Amber Greenhill, Rachel Grimes, Katelyn High, Catherine Hall, Tamiah Warner, Sealy Peirce, William Griggs, and Brandon Lash Faircloth. Dr. Ghimire and Mr. Wynn co-taught UNIV 4000, and Dr. Irina Toteva accommodated them on the trip.

For more information about leading a study abroad trip, please contact Judy Orton Grissett, Director of the Office of Experiential Learning at judy.grissett@gsw.edu.
