International Experience

During spring break freshman Presidential Scholars travel to a country in Europe, while the sophomore Scholars travel to a country in Latin America during winter break.  These trips are intended to be the starting point in the Scholars' journey on becoming "global citizens".  In their freshman year, they spend a week in a non-English speaking European country, so as to realize skills that meet the challenge of linguistic differences.  In their sophomore year, they have an immersion experience of the social and economic challenges for our neighbors to the South.

In the summer following their sophomore year, they are expected individually to construct a minimal eight-week experience that combines language study with service learning, lab work or some other activity where they can become fully immersed into the culture and country where they are spending the summer.  These summer experiences may be extended into their first semester junior year by studying abroad.
