Oregon State University, Class of 2015
“As I’m writing this, thinking about the love and care I received from my students, I get chills. There is an incredible authenticity to Nepalis, once you are welcomed into their hearts, they keep you there … Make the time to visit this country.”
“I took this opportunity abroad to say to myself ‘forget it’ and threw my introverted personality out the window because I knew I was only going to be in my village for a short amount of time. I took the opportunity to spend as much time with my host family in the kitchen (where they all worked and talked) to learn more about Gurung (the dominant local ethnic group in the region) and Nepali culture, language, and food .”
I (was also) fortunate enough to be able to walk to class with my students every day and that is when I don’t have to have my teacher hat on. I can have my friend or my traveler hat on. My students hold my hand on the way to class every day and it is amazing.”
Why earn credit on campus when you can earn it in the Himalayas?
Sound too good to be true? It’s not. Through your school, and their partnership with IE3 Global, you can study abroad in Nepal, live in a remote rural village, teach children English, and have the adventure of a lifetime all while earning college credit.
You don’t need to take off from school to take off across the globe. Our teachers love the option, and we’re sure you will too.
