Sophomore Mackenzie Kurtz and first-year Kyle Bohrer had a busy month—they traveled to Korea and back.
The two participated in the trip through a scholarship with the Council on International Education Exchange, and were a part of a group of 75 students from around the country.
“We mainly stayed in Seoul, and took a few classes at Yonsei University in Korean culture, history, and language,” Bohrer says. “But, we also did trips during our week there to a Korean folk village, Everland (Korean "Disneyland"), a Korean imperial palace, a Hyundai auto plant, the Blue House (Its like the Korean White House), and the demilitarized zone (pictured above) along with a bunch of other places. We also learned the Korean alphabet, a traditional Korean dance, and how to play traditional Korean drums.”
