January Term, a three-week program, invites students to take interdisciplinary courses, attend workshops and lectures, intern, travel abroad and donate time to community projects.
This year, students participated in projects from the other side of the world to right here on campus. No matter where they were, they embraced their hands-on, innovative and eclectic learning experiences.
"Thank you so much for an amazing group of students and staff. They were kind, sweet, hardworking, professional, respectful and caring. I could not have asked for a better group."
