Presley said he believes Interna-
tional studies arc an integral part
of a well-rounded education.
"1 strongly urge students to par-
ticipate in this program; it helps
students to get a more effective
and oroader education"
"When students are
forced to engage in other
cultures then they can
get a wider understand-
ing of not only educa-
tional things but godly
things as well."
Jennifer Smith fresh-
man international studies
major from Sweetwater said she
looks forward to participating in
the trip to Uruguay this fall.
"I think itf great that students
here have an opportunity to learn
about another culture and get col-
lege credit at the same time"
"I'm very excited to visit what
I've been told is the most beauti-
ful country in the world."
However both Presley and
Smith think that students who do
not participate In these programs
are missing out.
It really is a shame that a lot of
students for whatever reason
decide that studying abroad is not
for them" Presley said.
"I think the lessons taught and
the skills learned are beneficial to
all students no matter what back-
ground they come from."
Presley said he believes the
Study Abroad Programs serve a
higher purpose than most people
"These programs help students
to understand Christian unity;
God's purpose for humans is
unity not division" he said.
"1 truly believe the things expe-
rienced in the Study Abroad Pro-
grams help to teach and reinforce
