Namibian Flag

This January through May I am spending my semester on a PLU study away program for Nursing and Natural Science majors in Windhoek, Namibia, living with nine other PLU students on the University of Namibia (UNAM) campus. We are here with program director and PLU education faculty member, Jan Weiss who has lived in Windhoek the past year on a Fulbright Fellowship.  During the month of January, we will be taking an orientation/history course for the month of January (taught by UNAM history department head) and will be enrolled in UNAM courses for their fall semester (Feb-May). Between J-term and Fall Semester we will take a 10-day study tour of Northern Namibia and during our Easter/spring break, a second study tour to the coast, Namib-Nauklauft Desert and Damaraland. Over the next five months, I’ll do my best to keep you caught up with happenings here in Namiba- enjoy!
