"I had an amazing time in Ghana. We did so much in those few days. I could easily say my experience at Cape Coast Castle was the most powerful and eating breakfast/ dinner on the beach was the most relaxing. My favorite part of the trip was visiting the kids at school and being able to interact/ observe them in the classroom."

Daniel Walker, AU alumnus and former membership Graduate Assistant at Auburn Recreation & Wellness

"I set out to Ghana with an open mind and an eagerness to experience another culture, but nothing could have prepared me for the experiences and insight I’ve gained from going to Ghana. From exploring a rainforest, seeing historical sights, visiting beautiful beaches, and exploring the fascinating capital city Accra, plus all of the wonderful people I met along the way, it was everything you could ask for of a Spring Break and more."

Mike O’Key, Undergraduate, Double major in Environmental Design and Public Administration Chair; Inclusion & Diversity Committee | SGA Senate

"Working in Ghana with the University of Cape Coast (UCC) was quite the experience, especially while connecting with the UCC College of Distance Education (CoDE). During several meetings set-up by Dr. Elizabeth Essamuah-Quansah, the Coordinator for Outreach Global, I was able to embark with others on the search for how to help future students in the online learning environment. After several discussions with the UCC CoDE on online teaching and learning, it was clear that both universities can learn from one another. As a society, Ghana is a sight to behold. From the city to Kakum National Park to Cape Coast Castle, there is something for everyone. Cape Coast Castle helped me understand what life was like for some people during its operation [as part of the trans-Atlantic slave trade]."

"My trip to Ghana was one that I am still learning to describe with words. I was exposed to such a different culture and witnessed something breath-taking at least once daily, for the duration of the trip. Through the knowledge that I gained, I am able to inform my family and friends about the things I witnessed. My encounters completely shifted how I think about most things I deal with here in America. It is an experience that I will certainly never forget."
