Austin Peay State University offering 2014 study abroad trip to Galapagos Islands

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – On an overcast afternoon in August, Dr. Osvaldo Di Paolo, Austin Peay State University associate professor of Spanish, stood on a beach in the Galapagos Islands and watched ocean waves crash against black, volcanic rocks. A few feet away, a marine iguana prepared to go for a swim.

The creature was a bit larger than the lizards Di Paolo might find at home in Clarksville, but it was nothing compared to the giant, 800-pound tortoises he saw earlier that day.

Osvaldo Di Paolo and Marissa Chandler examine a rather large tortoise while in the Galapagos Islands.

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.

The Austin Peay State University professor of French was staying at the Hotel Clarendon in Quebec City, and the next afternoon she was going to embark on an intense study abroad program with a group of APSU students. For the next five weeks, the students would only be allowed to speak French.

To have a bit of fun before they left, Sorenson arranged for a morning of sightseeing through the historic, 400-year-old city. But shortly after waking up, she noticed the note under her door.
