Experiential Learning

The fifth in a series of reflections from past Villanova Engineering students and professors who have visited and been touched by the people of Waslala…

Traveling to Waslala, Nicaragua was an eye opening experience.  It is amazing that there are still people in this world that do not have the basic luxury of running water. To live in solidarity with the Nicaraguans’ and serve among them left me with an amazing feeling of humility.  What made the experience even better was incorporating the engineering curriculum we learned at Villanova.  Under the guidance of our professors and advisers we evaluated our sites to build or make improvements to their water systems.  It is an experience that I will never forget, and will stay interested in for many years.
