One of the biggest tourists attractions and one of the most well known set of islands across the globe, Hawaii has always provided a positive, relaxing, and knowledgeable experience for anyone who has set foot on those islands. For Murray County Central graduate, Shawna Nelson, the experience she had there led more to the knowledgeable side as she, along with a group of classmates from college, studied in Hawaii for a two week culture class.

Nelson graduated from MCC in 2012 and since then, she’s been continuing her studies at the University of Sioux Falls where she’s pursuing a degree in Radiology. With every degree at any school, a number of Liberal Arts Core classes are required to complete their majors. That’s when she found out about the opportunity to take this culture class in Hawaii.

Instead of going all semester for the credits, the opportunity to study in Hawaii was only scheduled for two weeks and she still received four credits for the course. Without hesitation, she signed up for the class.
