Preparing for a new adventure!

On May 14, sixteen Truman students will leave Chicago for Cape Town, South Africa, and the excitement is building!  We have spent the last semester reading about and discussing South Africa's history, politics, economy, race, class and gender inequalities, and human rights struggles.  We have learned a few Xhosa and Afrikaans greetings, and begun work on research projects relevant to our internship placements. As soon as final exams are over, we will embark on our South African adventure!

  1. As the parent of one of the students, I want to thank you for hosting and facilitating this study abroad opportunity. Our daughter fell in love with South Africa when she first visited in 2010, and has dreamed of returning ever since. Thanks also for setting up this blog to record the adventure as it unfolds. I look forward to future posts!
