Wake Up Call: A Multimedia Presentation

In fact, travel during Short Term has a quality all its own. Students in German professor Dennis Sweet's interdisciplinary unit "Wake Up!" are also spending two weeks off campus, but in very different activities — such as a week-long meditation retreat and a week in the wilderness. The course is designed to provide a rigorous experiential journey to self-awareness, appreciation of nature and social engagement.

Professor of German Denis Sweet launched an experiential Short Term course in 2008 that “really deals with one’s self, one’s place in the world and one’s place in society.” He offers the life-changing course once again in Short Term 2009. See a multimedia presentation about the experiences shared by Sweet and his students in spring 2008.
