NHS Alum to Study in Jordan

We just heard the news today that Ruth '04 was heading to Jordan for a study abroad experience.

She wrote in an email to friends and faculty:

"Today's the day! For many of you, today is the day you'll stop hearing my endless prattle about how excited I am to live far far away from anything I know or understand. Today is the day I leave for Amman. Yay!"
You can hear her excitement brimming over in these words.

I found my own study abroad experience transformative and shaping in my world view so I'm very excited for Ruth. I feel that this kind of journey is one of the most authentic experiential learning adventures going.

What's even better is that we can all follow along with her adventures on her blog. Best of luck Ruth!!
