Princeton Geosciences Major Studies Fisheries in New Zealand

January 16th, 2018


As Keo Chan of the Class of 2018 flew into Dunedin, New Zealand, to begin his semester abroad, a giant rainbow appeared over the airport. It was a “lucky sign,” he said, that he was in the right place.

Keo Chan, a geosciences major, spent a semester abroad studying aquaculture and fisheries in New Zealand through a combination of courses, labs and fieldwork.

If you had told Chan, a native New Yorker, that his Princeton education would include studying fjords in the South Island of New Zealand, he might not have believed you. But a gut instinct and some helpful advice from the Office of International Programs were all it took for him to decide on a spring semester abroad at the University of Otago.

Chan, a geosciences major with a specific interest in fisheries science, said he knew that studying at a university abroad would nudge him out of his comfort zone while enhancing his academic portfolio.
