Study Abroad News

In the news: "I bless the rains down in Africa..."

Prior to coming to Cape Town, myself and others were conflicted about the impact of the water crisis in South Africa. I didn’t know anything other than what mainstream media in the States was broadcasting and an email from the IES program. The news would say, “Severe water crisis in South Africa…Dams nearly drained of fresh water.” So on and so forth. I couldn't help but think, should I really go abroad during this time of crisis?
