Students to go around the world… See this from CUI and John Norton:

My name is John Norton, I am an English professor at Concordia University Irvine, but don’t let that fool you-- I am also a surfer, an adventurer, an absolute goofball (according to my wife, my three kids, and my students), and by God’s grace the director of Concordia’s Around-the-World Semester program.


I wanted to create a travel-study program for students who have not yet started their college career. Having led over 100 students on international adventures over the last ten years, I know that travel has a way of opening eyes, hearts, and minds. While I have enjoyed leading and directing Concordia's Around-the-World Semester program for the last seven years, I now want to invite more students into an ATW-style adventure of travel, service, and study. I want students to have an eye-opening and heart-expanding experience before they start college, before they choose a major, and before they make choices that will determine the course of their lives.

Watch this 45-second video to learn about the program.

This summer you have the opportunity to join a team of 30 students, to travel to Asia, and to learn and serve with powerful Christian heroes—men and women who are making a difference in their communities. In addition to being a wonderful spiritual and cultural adventure, this program will earn you three units of transferable college credit as you discuss, debate, and write about your travel experiences.

If this program sounds interesting to you, please let us know here or email me directly...and soon. All applications are due February 2. More information and the application can be found at www.cui.edu/atwu. Join us on a first-ever program that will soon become a movement!
