Video by Kate Benjamin ’15
During winter break, 16 Holy Cross students participated in an immersion program to Nicaragua to gain greater knowledge of the culture, social and political reality of the developing country. Kate Benjamin ’15, a history major from Pound Ridge, N.Y., captured footage and created a short video of the experience.
Accompanied by Rev. Gregory Lynch, S.J., assistant chaplain and director of service and social justice programs at the College, students encountered aspects of Nicaraguan culture through project sites, input sessions, day trips, memorial sites, worship experiences, and daily reflection.
The Nicaragua Immersion Program is in its sixth year. The Chaplains’ Office at Holy Cross runs several other immersion programs in which students travel to El Salvador, Jamaica, Kenya, and numerous locations throughout the country as part of the Spring Break Immersion Program, where students participate in community service.
