Can the actions of one Blugold make an impact globally? Brian Kraegenbrink thinks so. After living with a host family in the Amazonian rainforest in Ecuador, the UW-Eau Claire geography major now is considering how he can facilitate change through his day-to-day actions, as well as how he might use his college degree to make a difference in the lives of people living in underprivileged communities around the globe. His homestay was part of a three-week immersion program in Ecuador, an experience he says gave him a peek into the global capitalist system in which the world operates, and an up-close look at how consumer demand and westernization can leave some populations marginalized and living in poverty with little chance for change.
Hailey Nelson, a communication sciences and disorders major, knew she wanted to have an international experience during her college years, but with a packed schedule, finding time to study abroad was a challenge if she wanted to graduate on time. So when she discovered a three-week Winterim program in Ecuador she jumped at the chance to immerse herself in a new culture. The catch? The immersion program and prerequisite course, “Culture and Geography in Ecuador,” were clearly outside her usual academic sphere. She enrolled anyway, and soon discovered the impact the liberal arts could have on her future plans as a speech pathologist.
