Oakwood’s Immersion Program is experimentation at its best. It’s an alternative approach to learning that encourages students and faculty to take risks, gain self-knowledge, develop skills, and have a lot of fun in the process. Over two weeks in 2015, thirty-six classes set off on campus, across the country, and around the world.
In the mountains, seas, and deserts of the American West, Oakwood students are engaged in challenging studies of Marine Biology in Catalina’s Toyon Bay, Wilderness Skills and Photographic Composition in Death Valley, and American Environmentalism in Montana.
To the east, students are in our nation’s capital for Road to the White House, a study of electoral politics. In New York, Girls Learn International is at the UN Conference on the Status of Women, learning about leadership roles in the movement to affect positive change for girls and women worldwide.
