As the month of July comes to a close, we realized that a common thread ran through all of our study abroad programs this month – islands. From the Island of Great Britain, the Italian island of Capri, and the Greek islands of Crete and Santorini, all the way to Peru's Amantani island – Harding students have been able to enjoy some form of island life this summer. Please continue to read to see where else our students have visited this month!
One of the greatest benefits of the HUE program is living in downtown London. During the month of July, HUE students took advantage of London's great offerings by visiting the places like Kensington Palace, the British Museum, the National Gallery, the Museum of London, the Globe Theatre, the Imperial and Churchill War Rooms, the West End Theatre tour, and more. In addition, the group also took trips outside of London to Salisbury, Stonehenge, and Windsor. The group is currently touring Scotland to conclude the month of July and the program.
The month of July started while the HUG group was touring the Peloponnese region of Greece, visiting places like Corinth, Sparta, Olympia and more. Shortly after that trip, the group spent a few days soaking up the sun on the famous island of Santorini. Lastly, the HUG group traveled to the largest Greek island, Crete. This was an exciting new addition to the HUG itinerary as most groups do not typically visit the island.
The HUF program may be broken up into two, one-month programs for this summer, but that doesn't mean the itinerary isn't packed. So far, the July HUF group has visited many famous locations in Florence as well as places outside of Florence like Pisa, Pompeii, Lucca, Siena, the island of Capri, Positano and more! The group will soon end their travels in Rome, the Eternal City!
While normally a spring-only program, we are excited to offer a short HULA experience for three and a half weeks before school begins in Searcy this fall. The group arrived this past Sunday, July 25, and they've been enjoying their home in Arequipa, Peru and have set out on a trip to Lake Titicaca, the island of Amantani, the Colca Canyon and more! We'll share more next month at the conclusion of this trip. For now, be sure to follow @HUinLatinAmerica on Instagram to stay up to date!
