No word yet on how Melissa’s and Megan’s “Animal Planet” auditions turned out. For Global’s unique four-year immersion B.A., students experience diverse cultures and people through classes, fieldwork, service learning, internships, and independent studies at sites in Costa Rica, China, India, Australia, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and South Africa.

Three LIU Global students participated in LIU Post Professor Willie Hiatt’s “Andean History, Culture, and Politics” course along with twenty-one other students from LIU Post and LIU Brooklyn. They spent three weeks in Cuzco and visited Machu Picchu, the “lost” city of the Incas seen above.

Machu Picchu is as photogenic as any place in the world.

In early April, LIU Global China Center students and staff, along with Professor Lorna Baez from the Costa Rica Center (who was visiting at the time) embarked on a challenging trek along the ancient Hui-Hang Caravan Trail, on the border between Anhui province and Zhejiang province. Starting in the Tang Dynasty (A.D. 700), this trail functioned as an important trade route through which tea, silk, nuts and other important goods were exchanged between the two provinces. Our students accomplished a 13-mile hike along the winding trails, camped on the top of the mountain, and visited two historic towns, all while enjoying the gorgeous views!

From April 13 to April 19, LIU Global India Center students visited one of India’s most fascinating states, Kerala, to examine the economic and cultural dimensions of urban-rural contrasts in that state. Here is a photo and video collage sophomore student Clarissa Gordon put together with images from the trip!

Thinking about transferring into LIU Global? Some of our students share why they decided to transfer into LIU Global from other colleges and universities.

Here is sophomore Nikki Higgins who begins to reminisce about her favorite times this school year in India before she heads back home! “Holi, the holiday of love was beautiful in every way possible,” she said.
