MaSU students in Belize for study abroad experience

Nine MaSU students and their faculty advisor are in Belize from May 14-28 as part of the “International Perspectives in Health” course. The group is fully immersed in the culture and living with local families. They’re sharing their health education projects and providing health screenings and community service, helping to build nurseries and greenhouses.

The MaSU Office of Diversity and Inclusion coordinated a day-long multicultural showcase April 28. Activities included a study abroad showcase, swing dance lessons, a Japanese etiquette class, and an international dinner served in the cafeteria. The finale for the day was a performance by the Ballet Folklorico Mexico Azteca, along with MaSU students.
