Students setting sail on the Spring 2016 Voyage described it as an emotional roller coaster, and rightfully so. As buses pushed away from the Hilton Bayfront, San Diego the¬†morning of Jan. 5, students set out on one of the most emotional yet exciting days of their lives. MacKenzie Mock, a junior¬†at the University of Missouri, describes the mix of emotions¬†that hit her as the semester finally began.
‚ÄúI was a complete bundle of nerves getting dropped off at the hotel. Just¬†stepping on the bus to go to Ensenada today made it all the more real that this was¬†really happening.‚Äù
On this voyage away from home some students brought along what they referred to as a little “piece” of home–something that made their cabin a little more comforting as they began their journey around the world. ¬†See the video for a look at what a few students decided to bring.
