Women’s College to Offer Free Study Abroad Opportunity for All Sophomore Students

Cedar Crest CollegeCedar Crest College is a liberal arts college for women in Allentown, Pennsylvania. It enrolls about 1,350 undergraduate students and a small number of graduate students.

The college recently announced that beginning this fall all incoming first-year students who are in good academic standing (a grade point average of at least 2.5) will be eligible for a study-abroad opportunity during spring break of their sophomore year. The cost of the study-abroad program will be included in the college’s regular tuition and won’t necessitate any extra payment for students who qualify.

The so-called “Sophomore Expedition” will involve all members of the class in good academic standing traveling by plane to a location yet to be announced to participate in community service. Students will take a course on campus to prepare them for the trip.

Below is a video with Carmen Twillie Ambar, president of Cedar Crest College, discussing the new program.
