Hiya! My name is Lindsay Anderson and I am a 2015 graduate from Eastern Illinois University. I went on an 8-day faculty-led study abroad trip to Andros Island, Bahamas in May 2015. I have always had a respect for and interest in different cultures and submerging myself in the island life and Bahamian culture for a week was definitely a memorable experience! I learned to appreciate the pace of life on the island, the lack of dependence on technology, and the importance of people and relationships. One thing that encouraged me to chase adventures head-on while in the Bahamas was the support and camaraderie with my friends and classmates! EIU has this trip down to a science, but that isn't to say that each year the adventure isn't as unique and memorable as you make it! Speaking of science, one subject I never really liked in school was science- life science, chemistry, biology, you name it- ehh I wasn't a fan. But this trip made it cool, fun, exciting, and RELEVANT to me! Definitely an experience I will remember for a lifetime for a NUMBER of reasons! Hope you enjoy my blog!
