Paris’ Louvre, Ghana’s history,

other cultures draw Manchester

students to January Session

       It’s January Session and more than 11 percent of Manchester College’s students are abroad or studying in New York City or Washington, D.C.  They’re discussing modern scientific thought in Great Britain, experiencing the arts in Italy, studying African history in Ghana, and exploring cultures in Mexico, Hawaii, Spain and France.

       Meanwhile, 45 classes, practicums and internships continue back home in Indiana, from environmental law and accounting to chemical science and human conflict.

       Two classes are traveling France together: Social Psychology with Associate Professor Marcie Coulter-Kern and Exploring France with French Professor Janina Traxler. The 14 students and two faculty members are exploring Paris, Lyon, Strasbourg and more. 

       “I’ve never traveled outside North America before,” said junior psychology major Kelli Griewank, who studied French to prepare for the trip. “I’m nervous about traveling but I’m excited to visit Musée du Louvre!”

       Eighteen students are experiencing the arts in Italy with Professor Jim Adams and Thelma Rohrer.  Dr. Mark Angelos is teaching his popular Comparative Civilizations course in Spain this month and Dr. Susan Klein, chair of the Chemistry Department, has taken her class to London.  

       Dr. Benson Onyeji is teaching nine students about African History in Ghana and 14 students are in Latin America with Dr. Ingrid Rogers.  Professor Scott Strode is leading his Intercultural Theatre class to New Zealand this year.

       Nine students are Experiencing the Arts in New York City with Dr. Debora Dewitt of the music faculty and political science Professor Leonard Williams and six students will study Contemporary Politics in the nation’s capital.  Dr. Gary Zimmerman’s class in Cross Cultural Psychology is finding ample examples in Hawaii.

       Manchester’s January Session is Jan. 3-23, filled with focused, interactive study on campus and off. Typically, classes last three hours each day on campus. Spring Semester begins Jan. 31. For more about Manchester College, and academics that matter, visit
