Goshen was one of the pioneers of colleges in offering programs abroad, due in part to its Mennonite heritage of missions and foreign service, particularly Mennonite Central Committee. International education is a requirement for all students at Goshen College. Approximately 70-80 percent of students complete the requirement by participating in SST. Students are required to spend one semester abroad in a country or complete an intercultural experience in the US. They study the language and culture for six weeks at a foreign university, then do service for the remaining six weeks. Service may include working at a hospital, nursing home, kindergarten, or missionary service. Goshen College students currently may visit Cambodia, Nicaragua, China, Tanzania, Peru, Senegal, and Egypt. Previous SST spots include Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Germany, Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Cuba, Haiti, Poland, South Korea, Indonesia, Mali, and Ivory Coast. Over 7,000 students and 230 faculty members have journeyed to 23 different countries as part of SST. Commons:Category:Honduras wikipedia:Honduras

(in stone) dating from the period contains depictions of items thought to be paper. For example, Monument 52 from the Olmec site of San Lorenzo Tenochtitlán illustrates a personage adorned with ear pennants of folded paper. Miller and Taube (1993, p.131) Arguments from the 1940s to the 1970s have centered on a time of 300 CE of the use of bark clothing by the Mayans. Ethnolinguistic studies lead to the names of two villages in Mayan territory that relate the use of bark paper, Excachaché (place where white bark trusses are smoothed) and Yokzachuún (over the white paper) Anthropologist Marion mentions that in Lacandones (Lacandones Region), in Chiapas, the Mayans were still manufacturing and using bark clothing in the 1980s. For these reason it was probably the Maya to first propagate knowledge about the making of bark paper, spreading it through southern Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and El Salvador when it was at its height in the pre Classic period (Mesoamerican chronology).

Honduras

'''Honduras''' ( The country is bordered to the west by Guatemala, to the southwest by El Salvador, to the southeast by Nicaragua, to the south by the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Fonseca, and to the north by the Gulf of Honduras, a large inlet of the Caribbean Sea.

Honduras was home to several important Mesoamerican cultures, most notably the Maya (Maya civilization), prior to being conquered by Spain (Spanish colonization of the Americas) in the sixteenth century. The Spanish introduced Roman Catholicism and the now predominant Spanish language, along with numerous customs that have blended with the indigenous culture. The country became independent in 1821 and has since been a republic, although it has consistently endured much social strife and political instability, remaining one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere.

Honduras spans an area of about 112,492 km² and has a population exceeding 8 million. Its northern portions are part of the Western Caribbean Zone, as reflected in the area's demographics and culture. Honduras is known for its rich natural resources, including various minerals, coffee, tropical fruit, and sugar cane, as well as for its growing textiles industry, which serves the international market.
