Each year, students are afforded the opportunity to travel abroad for relatively short periods of time. These trips, coordinated by faculty, allow students to experience a variety of different cultures while learning, exploring or serving others. Past travel opportunities coordinated by faculty include trips to Brazil, where students worked with a ministry called Shade and Fresh Water; South Korea, where female students attended an international peace conference; and China, where students took a course on Chinese culture and calligraphy.
