Semester at Sea

Developing life success doesn’t only happen in the classroom. At uLethbridge, inspiring opportunities can be found in unusual places. For three uLethbridge students, that meant taking to the high seas for a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience spanning three months and 11 countries.

Prachi Sanghavi, Amanda Sakundiak and Mackenzie Salmon (photo: left to right) took part in the Semester at Sea program, which lets students see the world, learn from leading faculty, earn academic credit, and engage in hands-on projects at each port.

The trio joined more than 450 other students from around the world (including five from Canada) on the MV World Odyssey, a 10-deck cruise ship with nine classrooms. Their journey took them to Germany, Spain, Ghana, South Africa, Mauritius, India, Myanmar, Vietnam, China, and Japan before ending in the U.S.A.

Amanda and Mackenzie took part as the first recipients of a Brawn Family Foundation scholarship, while Prachi covered her own expenses. It was a life-altering experience for each of them.

“The experience broadened my understanding of what we take for granted and allowed us to experience different ways of living, none of which are better or worse, but just different, “ says Amanda.

“People always ask what was my favourite country was and I always say I don’t have one. I just had a lot of favourite moments and memories,” added Prachi. “I saw the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China, but it was experiences like being able to go to a small village in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam and get to know the people, their traditions and values that I’ll always remember.”

“It was an amazing experience to see the world and explore its diversity; I returned to uLethbridge with greater appreciation for global awareness. I look forward to applying my new discoveries to my future education and career,” said Mackenzie.
