Taylor Smith of Greenwood recently returned from a three-month semester studying in Australia and Asia at Harding University in Australasia (HUA).

As part of the HUA curriculum, spent the semester immersed in Australian and Asian culture. Students had the opportunity to experience Tokyo, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Australia and New Zealand, cultivating new relationships with fellow students.

Students in the program had a full course load available to them taught by visiting Harding professors. The professors also traveled with the students. The classes encourage exploration and interaction among the people of Australia and Asia.

Harding is the largest private university in Arkansas with 6,295 students. Harding also maintains campuses in Australia, Chile, England, France, Greece and Italy. For more information visit www.harding.edu.
