Studying Abroad in South Africa


I plan on studying abroad in South Africa next spring at the University of Cape Town through a program with CIEE.  The classes I will most likely take include African Gender Studies, African Dance, African Language (either Sotho or Xhosa), and South African History.  I also plan on joining the UCT “Athletics” Club (which is basically like a running club, but since running is the only real sport anyway- and because us trackies are just so darn athletic- I guess it only makes sense that in the rest of the world “running” is synonymous with “athletics”).

Here’s a picture of the upper campus at UCT.  I love how it’s nestled right against the side of the mountain.  It almost reminds me of the bluffs in southeastern Minnesota along the Mississippi River.
