Farewell, Fall 2016!

The Fall 2016 semester has come to a close! It’s been another wonderful semester!

Farewell Dinner

To end the semester, last week we celebrated all of the students’ accomplishments at our farewell dinner. The students and all of their Mukono homestay families, campus roommates, professors and practicum supervisors attended. We heard from several speakers, handed out certificates and enjoyed a delicious meal together.

Debrief Retreat

At our recent retreat in Entebbe, the students spent the first few days debriefing and reflecting back on the semester. The second half of the retreat spent preparing for re-entry to their North American homes, schools, relationships and culture. Even though the semester has finished, the students know that their learning is only just the beginning!

Contact information was exchanged, hugs were hugs were given and tears were shed. It's good to remember that when goodbyes are difficult, you’re leaving people and things you’ve enjoyed and loved.

We miss you already, but wish you all the best as you integrate back into North American life! Remember all you’ve learned here in Uganda – both inside and outside of the classroom. Thanks for a wonderful USP semester!

Merry Christmas and blessings for the New Year!
