From Desert to Sea

Last week, we heard all about Jordan’s spring break adventures in Thailand—a well-deserved getaway for one of BE’s See the World, BE the Future scholarship recipients. Even though there was no real time to prepare, as soon as it was over he plunged in headfirst preparing for his midterms.

The first things Jordan noticed once he returned were that classes were empty and libraries were packed—signs of midterms and project week. AUS’s second midterm is scheduled immediately after spring break so 48 hours after returning from Bangkok, Jordan was met with his first midterm of the week. However, he was smart enough to study on the long flight back.

After an arduous week of test taking, the exchange office treated the students on the annual exchange trip to Musandam, Oman: a beautiful beachside area off of the Gulf, bordering the UAE. The group took a 3-hour drive from Sharjah to Oman at 6 A.M. Once clearing border patrol, it was only a 1-minute drive to the beach to board their boat. After a 30-minute boat ride deeper into the Gulf, they idled at the main hub for the trip. They spent hours jumping into the extremely salty waters of the Arabian Gulf to cool off from the beaming sun. And for the first time in his life, Jordan was able to snorkel.
