  Study Abroad

Create your favorite college memory abroad

Imagine ten years from now someone asks you what your favorite college experience was. Your answer might be about meeting new friends, joining a club or playing on an intramural sports team. But your answer could also include a once-in-a-lifetime experience traveling the world!

Create your favorite memory this summer by exploring a foreign country on a faculty-led study abroad trip. Choose from a variety of locations, including Bali, the Dominican Republic, Germany, Guatemala, Uganda, Vietnam and more.


It all adds up during summer, too

What do you get when you take a well-lit study area, add in free drop-in tutoring, resources such as graphing calculators and solution manuals, and an open computer lab, then subtract all noisy distractions? The Math Learning Center in Kidder Hall, of course!

Open during summer term as well as the rest of the academic year, the Math Learning Center is a great spot for you to polish your skills and even make up a test. Be sure to check it out this summer and be on your way to finding the answer to your mathematic needs.
