DSU students reflect on their trip to Ghana
Three students from the College of Agriculture and Related Sciences visited Ghana, West Africa, during DSU’s winter break. The trip exposed these and other students from DSU to Ghana’s agriculture, international trade and culture. Shauna Green (senior, Textiles and Apparel Studies), Akida Ferguson (junior, Environmental Science) and Michael Smith (sophomore, Environmental Science), recently reflected on their shared experience. The knowledge gained by these CARS students informed them of the culture and climate of Ghana and its people, which will aid them in completing their respective research projects.
