After an unforgettable experience in Jordan, the spring 2012 students have returned home. Here is a brief look at their semester abroad and reflections of their adventures in staff and student photographs.
In mid-January, students became oriented with Amman with the help of AMIDEAST. Some activities included a city scavenger hunt and excursions to downtown.
In early February, students took their first program excursion to Ajloun and Jerash in Northern Jordan.
Significant Biblical sites in Jordan, such as the Dead Sea, Madaba, Mt. Nebo, and Bethany at Jordan, were explored in early March.
Students experienced the magnificence of Petra and Wadi Rum at the beginning of April.
Throughout the semester, students participated in cultural dialogue sessions, a Traditional Islamic Art class, and Community-Based Learning internships and volunteer positions.
Thank you for a fabulous semester Spring 2012 students! You will be missed!
