Program Description:
Uganda
Chat with classmates on campus at Uganda Christian University (UCU) as you munch on a “rolex” (a local snack of eggs and Chapati). Just 15 miles from the capital city of Kampala, Mukono offers USP students the opportunity to participate in Ugandan culture. Whether you live with a host family or in the UCU dorms, you'll take part in a Ugandan homestay experience, something students describe as unforgettable. Along with trips throughout Uganda, venture on an eye-opening 10-day excursion to Rwanda.
