Five to Study Abroad in Spring

Five adventurous students take off to foreign lands for the spring 2010 semester. French majors Amanda Burris and Michele Thevenot will spend the semester studying at the Université d'Angers in France. They will enroll full time at the university in the department of language and literature, earning credits toward their degree and living the life of French university students.

Spanish majors Joshua Kalin, Laura Bilecki, and Matthew Starr will head south to enroll at the Universidad Regiomontana in Monterrey, Mexico. They too will study language, culture and civilization alongside Mexican university students. Each will benefit from living with a host family.

All of these students are taking advantage of exchange agreements between Missouri Western and the host universities. The cost is the same as it would be to live and study on campus for a semester. In turn, we are hosting exchange students at Western this year: a student from France, three from Germany, and two from Mexico. For more information on these affordable exchange opportunities, just follow this link:
