A weeklong orientation precedes the Wells College Dakar Study Abroad Semester.
Meetings, lectures, and guided tours are set up to familiarize students with every aspect of the program: academic goals, cultural life of the city, museums and library facilities, transportation network, banks, post offices, stores, etc.
The host family and the student adviser provide a constant supply of information about the city and its surroundings.
You can also contact Dr. André Siamundele, Wells College Dakar Study Program Director, at email@example.com or call 315-364-3308 for more information.
“This program oversteps the boundaries of the traditional study abroad experience. It is still truly amazing to me not only that I lived in West Africa for nearly five months, but that it became my home.” —K.K., University of Missouri
