Semester in Kenya

“Every day was an adventure,” a former student recalled; and it’s true. Each day on the Semester in Kenya program offers something unique and amazing. Some days you may find yourself wandering through a rural African village, hunting with hand-made bow and arrows and then dancing under the stars. Another day. you might be on a safari staring into the eyes of a lioness or gazing up at a giraffe. You could swim in the Indian Ocean, or race quad bikes across the desert. Almost every day you’ll enjoy a cup of African tea and a chat with your new Kenya friends. Based in the booming capital of Nairobi at the United States International University, the program offers you 100+ adventurous days that will change your life.
