Our students are loving their time in India as they start to wrap up Trimester 2!

Can you believe Trimester 2 has almost come to an end? Over the past couple months our students have traveled across Southeast Asia where they’ve tried their hand at skills like animation, mixology, cooking, and navigation. They also had a great time celebrating Holi, the Hindu festival of colors and spring, with the students of UWC. For those who are unfamiliar, Holi marks the end of the winter season and the beginning of abundance that will come with the upcoming spring harvest. People celebrate Holi by smearing colored powder on each other’s faces, spraying colored water, and dancing. Sound like a blast? It looks even more fun than it sounds. Check out our students photos below from their celebration. We cannot wait to see what the last bit of Trimester 2 holds for our cohorts, and we’re even more excited to see the adventures they embark on during Trimester 3.

Additionally, to hear more from our students abroad, check out our student Anna’s blog! She has recently updated her site with a post about her time in Cambodia. Let us know your favorite photos of the week in the comments below! To see more photos of our students in the field be sure to check out our InstagramTumblr, and Facebook.
