Some of our students’ perspectives on LIU Global and what makes our program valuable… Take a look!

Why did our students choose LIU Global over another college or university? Find out in this video!

Just a few shots from our freshmen’s exciting field trip to Panama a couple of weeks ago! Site visits included the Panama Canal, Ministry of Trade and Industry, World Bank, Casa Esperanza (an NGO to help for children living in poor conditions and abusive family situations) and Guna Yala (an indigenous community on the island of Porvenir).

Why sit in a classroom, when you can study global issues through firsthand experiences in the field?

Why choose LIU Global? Here’s what our students have to say!

Students in the LIU Global Australia Program recently traveled to Bali, Indonesia! The Australia Program partnered with Bali Institute for Global Renewal (BIGR) to allow students to further deepen their understanding of the critical juncture of indigenous and environmental issues as part of a 10-day program in Bali. While they were there, students got to visit the Royal Palace and meet and have dinner with the prince (seen in the third photo talking to our students).

LIU Global senior Marie Tornquist took these pictures while taking a stroll on the Brooklyn Bridge, which is a short 20-minute walk from the LIU Brooklyn campus where our seniors spend their final semester. After 3.5 years of studying abroad, New York is a fantastic city to complete your capstone experience!

A taste of the Comparative Religion and Culture Program students’ recent experiences in India:

1. (From top to bottom) CRC students in Kerala, India, got to witness an ancient Hindu Vedic ritual at the house of a Namboothris Brahman family. The ritual was worshipping a Hindu goddess, and included dance, drumming, and a water offering.

2. Students got to visit the Taj Mahal during their week stay in Delhi. It was a great day and students were fascinated to see how much effort and precision was put into architecture for a Mausoleum.

3. Up in Varanasi, students are studying Hinduism in what is considered one of the most holy, religious cities in the world. Here is a typical Hindu shrine in a temple, one of several that students have been lucky enough to visit since arriving in India.
