April Mazak, a student at Harding University, recently returned from a three-month semester studying at Harding University in Zambia (HIZ).

As part of the HIZ curriculum, Mazak spent the fall 2013 semester immersed in Zambian culture, cultivating new relationships with fellow students. After a three-day safari in Botswana, students visited mission teams in Tanzania and Rwanda at the conclusion of the trip.

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 encouraged exploration and interaction among the people of Zambia.

Luther Grulke of Kelley was named to Augustana College’s fall term dean’s list. Students who have earned this academic honor have maintained a grade-point average of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale for courses taken during the term. Grulke is a freshman, major undecided.
