Study Abroad to South Africa


Hole in the Wall Transkei South Africa


Dr. Lori Assaf has been teaching the Study Abroad Course to South Africa for the past four years. During Summer Session I, Dr. Assaf takes up to 12 students to Chintsa South Africa to work in local rural schools. We teach local students how to write personal narratives in English and isiXhosa and turn those pieces of writing into digital movies using PowerPoint. In addition to working in the schools for over 60 hours, we go on several hiking excursions, spend the night with Mama Tofu, and visit a local game park. If you are interested in attending the study abroad program, please email Dr. Assaf at

Take a look at two of the videos from last year’s trip to get an idea of the kind of work we do with children in schools.

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!
