DG Travelers: Paige Codilis

Paige Codilis (NMC '09) is spending her study abroad trip with the Semester at Sea program. Through the University of Virginia's program, Paige is aboard a cruise ship with over 1000 other students from across the country, traveling around the world.

Her voyage will take her to 12 different countries, including: the Bahamas, Dominica, Brazil, Ghana, South Africa, Mauritius, India, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, and Japan. Paige will also be making a stop in Hawaii before the ship finally docks at San Diego, California.

During her trip, Paige has had the opportunity to volunteer in refugee camps, hike through the countrysides, and even swim with sharks!

Although it may seem very busy, Paige still makes time for classes, which are sometimes aboard the ship in a classroom, but can also be at an outdoor spot in their current location.

Paige is gaining a great deal of life experience from her trip, and has already said she hopes to one day return to these less fortunate countries to continue her volunteer work.

After a day-long hike through the countryside, Paige had the opportunity to jump into the water at this beautiful Dominican waterfall.

Paige is pictured here with two of her new friends at a refugee camp in Africa. In front is Dora, who was just rescued from slavery three weeks earlier.
