Honors Program > Current Students > Study Abroad > Hannah Manion
For two weeks over last winter break, I participated in a study abroad program focused on mining, forestry and communities in Peru. Throughout the trip our class visited several different cities which aided in illuminating the geographic and social diversity of the country. We began our trip in Lima, the country’s largest city and capital. We then traveled to the Madre de Dios region where we were able to hike through the Amazon, and our final stop was Arequipa, a city in the Chili River of the Andes Mountains. As an English Literature major, this program provided me the chance to study a topic outside my main area of study. Studying abroad offered me the opportunity to experience first-hand the importance of interdisciplinary and global scholarship!
