Students from select programs in the School of Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation are having the time of their lives studying abroad for a semester in Strasbourg, France.
So far the students have been on a wine tour, explored a castle, learned about the production of Foie Gras, done city tours, tasted chocolate from a famous chocolatier, shopped in Germany, co-hosted and attended a Halloween party and, of course, attended classes. Some students even visited Paris last weekend.
The semester abroad program was made possible thanks to a partnership between Georgian and Schiller International University, a private school with facilities and campuses across Europe.
Georgian is among the first Ontario colleges to offer a full semester of learning abroad.
