Semester at Sea Fall 2006 Voyage banner


Biography: Carrie Benson


            Carrie is a junior at the University of Pittsburgh, studying Urban Studies and Political Science.  She recently traveled around the world on the MV Explorer with the Semester at Sea program.  On her incredible voyage she had the extreme pleasure of visiting the countries of Japan, China, Vietnam, Myanmar, India, Egypt, Turkey, Croatia, and Spain.  While in each country she explored the different religions, cultures, and people in general, gaining an entirely new outlook on the world.

            In the spring of 2007 she will go back to the University of Pittsburgh to continue working her majors and participating in organizations, such as the Student Global AIDS project.  If all goes well, Carrie will graduate from Pitt in the spring of 2008.  Hopefully, she will remain a traveler all her life.
