Today, here at St. Olaf College, we held another international and off-campus studies open house. An annual event, around this time, it is an occasion to showcase the many international and off-campus study programs we run. St. Olaf is a top-ranked college in the USA in this field.
We have programs in different parts of the world, a number of them in
African countries, including Senegal, Ghana, South Africa, and Namibia. I am the
advisor for the ACM Tanzania and ACM Botswana programs.
Students interested in, or curious about, these programs get the chance to learn
more by talking with program advisors.
It is always a pleasure to talk with students seeking to study abroad,
to tell them about the countries they are thinking about, the
educational system, the people and the culture, and such things.
Studying abroad is a valuable part of the students' education, and we
encourage it seriously.
