Student Immersed in Culture at University of Cape Coast

October 14, 2013

Alex Nagy '13, studyingInternational Studies and National Security at BW, is taking experiential learning to a whole new level this semester. Stepping outside the traditional learning environment, Alex is studying at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana, Africa.

Nagy observes, "As a student from the most politically and economically powerful country in the world, Ghana enables me to see the perspective of the world stage from a developing country; a perspective which cannot be gained from any amount of academic literature."

Anyone interested in following Alex's adventures can check out his photo blog. The photo right shows a network of roped bridges that Nagy navigated high up in the canopy of the rainforest in the Kakum National Park.
