Hey Future Exonians,
Today I write from India! I am here accompanied by nine peers and ten faculty members from Exeter. We were each selected to attend as part of an off-campus program. It has been a remarkable experience. I have had the opportunity to meet many influential figures in the nation and even those vital to the cultural landscape in rural communities.
A great aspect of the trip is that some of the faculty members present include my Japanese teacher, advisor, and photography instructor. Some of the opportunities we have had include visiting the Taj Mahal in Agra, the famous Ganges and silk factories in Varanasi, bustling Calcutta, and a variety of very rural villages.
The trip is approximately two weeks, and everyday has been one of exploration and intrigue. This adventure has changed me in a variety of facets. Without Exeter, I believe I would never have seen this part of the world, and that would have been a shame. India is a beautiful country; especially when I have the Exeter community to share it with.
