Courtney Windju - “Summer School ...”

 Courtney Windju

Courtney left the USA to study at the University of Otago in New Zealand. When she’s not studying she likes exploring, baking and meeting new people. Courtney graduated from the University of San Diego in 2016.


The first semester of my junior year of college has officially started. I have to say it feels a bit strange to be going to classes in July, but so far I have adapted surprisingly well. I am taking four courses here at the University of Otago: psychology, religion, English and music. 

In my free time I have been walking around town. Today I purchased a pair of hiking boots and a sleeping bag for my future adventures! Have I mentioned the people here are very friendly? Everyone is so helpful and willing to have a conversation with you anytime, anywhere. 


“... my future adventures!”

While I am in Dunedin, I will be interning at the Volunteer Centre on campus, which will fulfill requirements for my leadership minor at the University of San Diego. I am excited to meet other Otago students and give back to the Dunedin community.
