Amazing gap year experience!

With a great combination of activities that pushed us out of our physical and mental comfort zones, Carpe Diem's South Pacific Gap Year was a truly incredible and life-changing semester! We traveled almost all of New Zealand from north to south, spent a week living in a remote village in Fiji, and whipped through a huge portion of Australia in four short weeks. There was a good balance of structure and free time, with great cultural immersion programs that increased our knowledge of the places we were and the history surrounding them. I learned a ton environmental issues and how to live in better harmony with the Earth through my day-to-day life. Our overseas educators, Eric and Lolly, were very passionate and willing to share their experiences with us on a personal level. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who is unsure of whether traditional college is the right choice for them!

Carpe Diem South Pacific: BEST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD

Carpe Diem Education is an amazing program that has changed my life in so many amazing ways. I have been home for almost a year now and it is crazy how much I miss the everyday hustle and bustle of my Carpe trip. Every day was a new experience from waking up and milking cows to scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef. This program was a perfect balance between work and play. The leaders for my Carpe trip were nothing short of amazing, they would push us to do our best always and were so unbelievably qualified I never once felt unsafe or at risk of danger the entire 3 months. If anyone out there is looking for an experience of a lifetime Carpe Diem Education is the trip for you.
