South Pacific Study Abroad Checks Life’s Bucket List

Xiomara Rivera is no stranger to seeing new places. She’s traveled extensively as a member of the military and has seen nearly every part of the world.  Yet there was one place she hadn’t visited.

The South Pacific.  A destination that topped her Bucket list.

As a law student, she didn’t think she could consider or have the time to travel. That is until she heard about WMU-Cooley’s Foreign Study program Down Under.  The chance to visit and study the law in the South Pacific was calling her – and she answered quickly – signing up for WMU-Cooley’s Australia/New Zealand Winter 2014 program.  Bonus: January Down Under is their summer!

Visiting Australia and New Zealand, along with side trips to Indonesia and Tahiti, was a dream come true for Xiomara – making it on another list – The South Pacific is one of her favorite places in the world!
