Sixteen Scholarsstudied South Aricanhistory, culture, poli-tics, and commercewith history proessor James Burns in spring2011, ollowed by aMaymester educa-tional enrichmentexpedition centered inCape Town. Highlightsincluded Table Moun-tain National Park,the Bo Kapp district,Kirstenbosch Gardens,wildlie expeditions,meetings at theUniversity o Stellen-bosch, and a tour oKhayelitsha township.
Dr. Burns warned us during our rst meeting that Aricawould grab us and not let us go. He was partially right --Arica is a ascinating continent and not easy to orget, butDr. Burns’ enthusiasm or the subject and excellent teachingencouraged me to continue learning about South Arica andother parts o the continent.

LAUREN HARROFF
Engineers tend to focuson scientific issues, but this experience re-minded me how interested I am in working with people and for human interests. It alsoreinforced the idea that scientific and en- vironmental issues are closely intertwined with the human condition.
KATHARINE AMALFITANO
I was moved by thekindness and generosity of the people of Cape Town, particularly at Vicky’s B &B, where she works to provide lunches tochildren in Khayelitsha but cannot affordto do so every day. As President of Sertomaat Clemson, I hope we will assist her overthe coming year.
REBECCA DEERY
As an education major, I’mconstantly creating ways to use my passionfor teaching to do something extraordinary. Visiting the township school energized mefor a future teaching abroad where quality educators are so desperately needed.
