CWU students participate in study abroad program in Guam
While a bustle of activity at the Sinajana Senior Center is not a rare event for the local community center, it is only once a year that they are visited by a group of students from Central Washington University (CWU). For the past two weeks, a group of five pre-nursing and early education students have participated in a study-abroad program to Guam where they have been immersed in the local culture and environment.
From hiking to Pågat Cave to exploring the night market at Chamorro Village, the students have been given a guided tour of the island by Mark Perez, an associate professor with the CWU Department of Health, Educational Administration and Movement Studies. He is also a native of Guam.
For the past six years, Perez has provided students from the university with the unique opportunity to come to Guam and experience a culture different from the one they grew up in. Apart from hiking and beach outings, the students have been involved with the University of Guam Adventure Sports Camp as well as the Sinajana Senior Center.
