Weekend Explorations

While studying abroad, the students have the unique opportunity to travel to other countries on the green weekends. The students traveled to three different countries this past weekend. The countries included the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, London, and France. We are delighted that the students will be able to engage in these excellent activities.

The majority of the students went to Amsterdam this past weekend. Amsterdam is colloquially referred to as the “Venice of the North”, due to the large number of canals that form a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Photo by Jared Sliman.
