G’day Huskies! Five students and a recent graduate have spent three weeks of summer traveling through Australia exploring many different activities and cultures the continent offers. Led by West Chester University faculty member Jason Phillips, along with nine others from various university across the country, these Huskies ventured on a 22-day journey through some of Australia’s most beautiful locations.
Evelynn Guzman, a student in the School Counseling College Student Affairs (M.Ed.) graduate program, highly recommends going abroad as she never did in her undergraduate years but feels she learned more about life and herself on this trip than she ever could have imagined.
Through scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, hiking through some of Australia’s best-known natural landmarks in the Northern Territory, surfing some waves on beautiful Bondi Beach and attending a performance of Mozart’s Haffner Symphony at the world famous Sydney Opera House (and many more), the students rank their exploration and education tour one of the most memorable experiences of their lives.
