Nepal Semester Student's Catherine Von Holt's photograph of the Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu.


Hey y’all! I’m Caty and I’m from New Jersey; currently I’m at Tulane in New Orleans, studying English. I’m beyond excited to meet everyone and to explore Nepal! New Jersey (and Louisiana) are very flat, so I’ve always been fascinated by mountains and my favorite memories are the times I’ve spent in the Sawtooths, Whites and Adirondacks.

I chose this program because I’ve always dreamed of the Himalaya and this looked like an incredible opportunity to not just see Nepal, but to really explore a country and culture totally new to me, and in a completely different way from sitting in a classroom. I’m an observer and writer by nature, so I’m very excited to learn, document, and make some amazing new memories.

See you all soon!
