Coordinators Profiles

When I applied for my first immersion trip, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into. It ended up being the defining moment of my entire college experience (so far), and I am forever thankful I was able to have such a life-changing experience. My immersion to Oakland, CA was..indescribable really. It was challenging, uncomfortable, even heartbreaking at times, but it was also one of the most beautiful weeks of my life. I left for the trip with strangers and came back with brothers and sisters, and a brand new understanding of the world and a new perspective on where I stood in that world. My immersion trip taught me more about myself, my peers, and the world in one week than I could have ever imagined. That's just one of the reasons I applied to be an IC, so I could help other students have immersion experiences like mine. I whole-heartedly believe that the immersion trips at SCU will change lives and through the people who go on them and come back forever influenced, will be causes for amazing changes in the entire world.
