APSU Students spend week in London with new study abroad program

 

Austin Peay State University

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – When Travis Tanner, an Austin Peay State University freshman, read “Oliver Twist” for his world literature class earlier this semester, he had a little trouble visualizing the young orphan’s journey through London.

Part of the problem was that Tanner, a physics major, had never visited Europe. In fact, his only experience with international travel occurred a few years ago on a road trip to Canada. So the drab, Georgian-style buildings of Victorian England were a bit hard to imagine.

Dr. Jennifer Snyder, APSU assistant professor of art, Tina Rousselot de St. Ceran, coordinator of International Education at APSU and Dr. Daniel Shea, associate professor of Languages and Literature, visit the Tower of London on a recent study abroad trip.
