Student Blog: The Jordan Experience

Ever wondered what it would be like to sail across the sandy deserts of Arabia on the “Ships of the Desert” – or what you and I would call camels? Then read about that and much, much more in Charles Carrington’s blog for a taste of his incredible journey through Jordan during the Summer of 2014!

As part of his incredible voyage, Charles received the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship. This prestigious, national program awards study abroad scholarships to Pell Grant recipients who are going to nontraditional locations (like Jordan!) or studying critical languages, such as Arabic, Russian, Turkic, and Indic languages.
