Dr. Carol Strauss shares:

“This program has been ongoing since 2003, alternately conducted by Robbie Goodrich (History), Jon Sherman, and myself. It has been a delight to observe the successful growth of this program---clearly the word is spreading and we want as many students as possible to take advantage of the comparatively low cost for the experience of a lifetime”.
