Study Abroad 2009 A Fun Memory!

The study abroad trip to France was 28 days of fun, culture, media visits and learning experiences! Students in Ethics and Problems and Travel Reporting met with NPR correspondent Eleanor Beardsley and visited France 24, France’s 24-hour news channel. They also visited important sites in Paris, Bordeaux and Lyon and shared great times with other Florida Gators and new international friends.

Gators Conquer Lake Wauberg!

Study Abroad 2009 hosted its annual Lake Wauberg Day on February 14. About 45 Gators who will be participating in this year’s trip to France got to know each other through team building activities and social events. Several brave participants and professors even scaled the Wauberg Tower! The event is an annual tradition for the COJC study abroad program. Other pre-trip events include group meetings to discuss the culture and conventions of France and to have a chance to hear from citizens of our host country. Professors are also meeting with their students before the trip to discuss class assignments.
