This program is uniquely-active immersion into the Chilean beach, urban, and rural communities while completing community service focusing on athletics and community reconstruction after a tsunami. Todd Ericson, a 1993 Susquehanna University graduate, offers his expertise in the language, culture, history, geography, and economy of Chile affords the program a rich resource of knowledge and experience. Life is Good in Chile is a specific program that rotates eligibility (every two years, only members of the SU Baseball team participate; the following two years, enrollment is open to all students).
Financial aid: Need-based aid may be available
Directors: Dennis Bowers, Head Baseball Coach/Strength and Conditioning Coach; George Cravitz, Adjunct Education Faculty and Enactus Advisor
Through intentional programming, students make the most of their short-term study abroad on GO Short programs. You will study away with Susquehanna faculty/staff leading a small group of Susquehanna classmates, all of whom have participated in the program’s preparation (i.e. GO Prep) course in the semester prior to departure. After an intensive, active program, there is a reflection course for the program to optimize your cross-cultural learning. As these programs run during winter or summer breaks and are 2-6 weeks, they are great opportunities for students to study away without committing to a full semester.
