One week left!

We have finally reached our one week mark for our departure date! It is kind of a surreal feeling, knowing that the coordination of this trip began back in October, with the trip participants finalized in November. With all the work that has gone into coordinating the trip and sharing travel abroad information with participants, this has been quite the experience of establishing the first study abroad program like this at William Penn University.

With one week left before we leave, as trip coordinator I am more busy ensuring that all the travel arrangements are solidified, William Penn University has all of the necessary forms signed and collected, last-minute questions are being answered, etc. before I am able to focus on my own packing and final trip preparations. It is truly a crazy process but one that I hope will turn out well during our 11 day trip to Rwanda and Tanzania.

Our final meeting as a group before our trip is on Monday – with the next time after that during which we will all meet together being at the Des Moines airport after checking in for our flights.
