Dear Marquette Students,

Greetings from the Philippines! I am a 2011 graduate of Marquette University, and in my time at MU I had the great privilege of studying abroad with the Casa Educational Network.

For the past year and a half, I have been working with the Casa staff—moving from El Salvador to my current life and job in the Philippines. I wanted to reach out to you as Marquette students to tell you about the wonderful opportunity to study abroad in this unique and remarkable program, Casa Bayanihan.

Casa Bayanihan is a cultural immersion into the beautiful, gritty reality of life in the Philippines. It is a chance to experience a new culture, live in an intentional and holistic community, stretch your mind beyond boundaries and borders, and learn more about how we all fit into this mysterious and, at times, challenging, world. I invite you to come to the casa. To experience the joy, the reality, the Philippines. If you want to learn more or APPLY, please visit the program site: (http://www.scu.edu/casa/bayanihan/) OR our new Casa Bayanihan tumblr page (http://casabayanihan.tumblr.com/). Pictures, videos and real life experiences tell the story much better than I could on my own!

Gratitude and Peace,

Sullivan Oakley
