Verto Education Spring 2021

Great trip. Snorkeled, Scuba-dived , Skydived, went zip-lining, and visited many other sites. Fijian staff was phenomenal and supported our learning during all activities and times of day. Got a greater understanding of the world as a whole without learning through textbooks and enjoyed learning the whole time. Country was beautiful, water was clear, great reefs. The base house where 5-6 weeks in total is spent has lovely staff, rooms were clean and nice, and it had a pool and many games to play.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
I have an immense fear of highs but through the support of my friends and staff I went skydiving. Out of the 24 students on my trip, 23 went skydiving and I did not want to have regrets looking back on the trip. I went and while nervous, I had a blast!!

A Good Time

My semester in Fiji with Verto Education was the greatest adventure of my life. And I would highly recommend the program for anyone wanting to wait a little before going off to a four year college. What sets Verto in Fiji apart is the people. The staff in Fiji were some of the most incredible people I have ever met, and made me feel at home half way across the world. My classmates went from strangers to family and now I know wherever I go in the U.S. I will have friends near by. Also due yourself a favor and grog some kava.

What was your funniest moment?
Sleeping in a hammock on the beach in Somosomo under the stars.

Lyla’s review

This program was unique because of the amazing opportunity to experience Fijian culture at its roots. Being able to meet and stay with local villagers and communities was made possible by Verto. The immersion and acceptance by the Fijian community is something that has changed my life and an adventure I will forever be grateful for. The mixture of college classes and field work was a perfect match for a person who thrives in hands on learning settings such as myself. Being able to travel to multiple locations for extended amounts of time was also beneficial.

What would you improve about this program?
Although we had some time in the villages and with local community members I think students would benefit greatly from even more time in villages and more freedom as well.

Great experience abroad!

Loved getting to know the local culture. Fiji is one of the most amazing places I have ever been! If you have the opportunity to come here, do it!!! You will not regret it. I took a gap year and came on this trip before college. I really think that the values of this country and the people that I met here will have a permanent impact on me and my future! This country is also so beautiful and full of amazing places to see and things to do!!! The VERTO staff are some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything :)

What would you improve about this program?
I would have loved more time to explore solo, like more opportunities for independent immersion. More time in the village!

Fiji is Awesome - Verto

I learned so much about the world and myself through my incredible time in Fiji with Verto. I had so much fun zip lining, sky diving, fire-walking, story telling, snorkeling, exploring, fishing, kayaking, taking pictures, going scuba diving and so much more! The semester was jammed packed with countless activities that peeked the interest of our group and surely students to come. The villages we visited welcomed us with open arms and we were able to learn so much about the people and their culture.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
What surprised me the most was my discovery of the spiritual values and myth that are so well accepted in Fijian culture.
