BLUFFTON STUDENTS TO RECOUNT SEMESTER IN N. IRELAND
Bluffton University students who participated in the peace and conflict resolution program in Northern Ireland during fall semester 2011 will share their experiences at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31, in Founders Hall. The forum is free and open to the public.
Scheduled to speak are Seth Burch (Tallmadge, Ohio), Tasha Eickholt (Cloverdale, Ohio), Megan Hilkey (North Canton, Ohio), Samantha Mack (Rockford, Mich.), Kara Marang (Norton, Ohio), Curt Metzger (Delphos, Ohio), Scott Misamore (Findlay, Ohio), Katie Pash (Kenton, Ohio), Lauren Paul (Bluffton, Ohio), Samantha Ritter (Tiffin, Ohio) and Ezekiel Tracy (Continental, Ohio).
Among Bluffton students’ options for fulfilling a cross-cultural requirement are studying elsewhere for a semester—as the students did in Northern Ireland—or spending two to three weeks in May and June exploring a different culture in the United States or abroad. These experiences provide opportunities for widened perspectives and an increased respect for community.
