Carpe Diem offers 3 month semesters combining service, cultural immersion, and adventure. Travel with a group of 12 other students committed to the internal and external exploration our programs offer. Throughout your travels you’ll share meals, live among different peoples, and build meaningful relationships with local people along the way. You will journey to a Fijian village to participate in community-based volunteering and live with a local family, work in the Outback and learn about Aboriginal peoples, take a soul-refreshing spiritual retreat, challenge your limits at an outdoor leadership school, learn about environmental conservation while volunteering on a farm in New Zealand, climb the infamous Mt. Ngauruhoe(aka Mt Doom!) and much more. The grand finale of your adventure is five incredible days learning to scuba-dive on the famed Great Barrier Reef! Our programs are accredited by PSU, meaning you can earn a full semester of credit while having the experience of a lifetime!
