The February convocation for 2018 was presented by the C.A.L.L. center. They announced the travel seminars, study abroad locations, and service trips for the 2018-2019 school year. They had booths set up from the the previous year’s study abroad, travel seminar, and service trips. Students who went on these trips manned these booths. They gave out food that was special to the place where they traveled. The faculty advisers who are chaperoning the trips gave a brief overview of what the trip was on and what the focus of the area is.
A big part of the Honors Program is the Global Competency requirement. There are a few ways to fulfill this requirement and one of them is a study abroad opportunity. Studying abroad in a non-English speaking country is one of the possibilities. The Honors Program pushes students to explore new cultures and see the world from different perspectives. Studying abroad in a non-English speaking country would immerse a student in a culture that they are not familiar with.
In addition to study abroad opportunities presented at the convocation, the travel seminars for 2018-2019 were announced. All of them sounded quite interesting but the winter break travel seminar to Israel sounded particularly interesting. I am a theology major and would like to study in depth different biblical sites. This travel seminar would be an opportunity to see some of the sites I have read about.
