Deana is a junior biological science major from Arkadelphia, AR. "Riding mules down the Grand Canyon" was one of the items on her bucket list. Looks like she will be able to cross that one off soon.
Deana will spend the Fall 2012 semester at the honors program of Northern Arizona University.
According to Northern Arizona University:
- The Grand Canyon Semester is an integrated learning experience in the humanities and sciences. Students come to understand the environmental and social challenges confronting us in the 21st century through one of the earth’s most precious resources—water. Using an interdisciplinary approach, students experience water’s economic, political, artistic, ecological, social, and spiritual forces.
- On backcountry field trips, in classrooms and art galleries, around campfires, in traditional hogans, and floating down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, we confront the 21st-century global challenges of managing water in these diverse natural and cultural landscapes.
