Go into this part of the trip with an open mind, but have one, concrete goal or thing to try before the end of the week. Other than that one specific thing though, seek happiness. That is a very broad term and should not be overlooked. Go into this trip and do what makes YOU happy, and please, I repeat, please, try things you never would have dreamed of trying because these little things present themselves as opportunities every hour of every day, but if YOU are not willing to take advantage of these opportunities you will undoubtably and drastically reduce the value of this trip. Trust me, do this and you will have a different view of life when you return home.


Emily Lara Gronlund, Summer 2017 Participant
Keep an open mind and be ready to meet people completely different from yourself and enjoy new adventures!

"Discover Abroad with UGA. It will be one of the best experiences of your life. It was for me."


Amanda Nicole Blackwell, Summer 2016 Participant
This is the trip of a lifetime. Every penny was worth it! I've met a great group of people, learned so much about different cultures, and now I just want to travel everywhere!


Summer 2016 Participant
I really learned a lot more about tourism in the community setting than I ever thought I would and saw things from lots of different perspectives. It was definitely the most diverse experience I've had.


Summer 2017 Participant
An eye-opening and unforgettable experience


Summer 2017 Participant
It was eye opening to see that people who live so differently from us can be as, if not more, happy than we are.


Dallas Alexander Greene, Summer 2017 Participant
The fear of not knowing is greater than the height of any mountain and wider than width of any valley, but if you climb these mountains and explore the valleys, that fear will become a happiness that is also greater than the height of any mountain and wider than the width of any valley.


Summer 2017 Participant
What a beautiful and culturally-rich experience!


Cara Jane Steinocher, Summer 2017 Participant
Quite a different experience. The village and coral reef at your finger tips makes it worth it"


Ana Daly Abramson, Summer 2018 Participant

Summer 2018 Participant
Fiji gifted us with perspective in the villages and indulged us with its snorkeling. This class was solely fieldwork allowing for firsthand experiences. Students made their own judgements and formed their own opinions rather than being told what to belief from a video or a traditional lecture.
