Michael Wooten and Christine Sundermann of the Department of Biological Sciences, and Leslie Cordie of the College of Education, led a hands-on study abroad experience in Swaziland, South Africa.

Seven Auburn students from a variety of majors, including plant pathology, pre-vet and pre-med, spent 18 days camping while doing fieldwork across Swaziland and experiencing different cultures. The Department of Biological Sciences provided support for two undergraduates from the University of Swaziland to attend the course, allowing an opportunity for cross-cultural learning.
