About Me and the SIT Program

Hello all!

Me, Eli Baez

My name is Eli Baez, and I am a junior at Whitman College with a major in English. I am uber-excited to be studying abroad, and I anticipate that the experience will help me get comfortable with stepping out of my comfort zone. I hope to share my experiences abroad with you through this blog.

For your information, I am studying with the SIT Indonesia: Art, Religion, and Social Change Program during the 2019 fall semester. The program examines how religion, society, and the arts have developed in Indonesia, as well as how these subjects are influenced by growing global pressures. After a few months of excursions, classes, presentations, and homestays, the program culminates in a final project, of which students can choose between an independent study project or an internship. For more information, you can visit their website at https://studyabroad.sit.edu/programs/semester/spring-2020/abr/.

Thank you to all who take the time to visit my blog! Feel free to leave comments or questions on posts; I will try to respond promptly.
