This weekend DePaul University held their First Annual Study Abroad Alumni Dinner. I attended the dinner along side six classmates I studied with in Morocco. Reminiscing about our "host families" in Fes, camel rides in the Sahara Desert, drinking wine in hotels, bonding in Meknes, being sick in Casablanca and protests in Rabat was truly life giving. Our experience together in Morocco was one of the most memorable times in undergrad. New perspectives on travel, academic research, culture, religion, and friendship were gained during the trip. A big thank you to Professor Sharon Nagy and the entire Study Abroad office for organizing the joyous event. Please continue to create opportunities for life changing moments for students at DePaul!
Above is a snapshot from this weekend. Below are a few photos from our Morocco trip in 2008. I love the photo of my host family! They were some of the most hospitable people I've ever met, despite the large language barrier!
