Music Department Studies Abroad in South Korea

Joining President LaForge are Amanda Lutz and Catheryne Booth, two music majors who participated in the study abroad trip to South Korea.

Earlier this summer, Dr. Christy Riddle and Ms. Michelle Johansen joined President LaForge in a Fireside Chat segment to discuss Delta State’s international programs, including Study Abroad, the newest division of the DSU Student Success Center that provides students and faculty with opportunities to participate in academic and cultural programs around the world.

At the beginning of the summer, faculty and students from the music department traveled to South Korea for a week, which included attending classes, performances by faculty and students, as well as some sight-seeing.

At Delta State, we believe that opportunities, like the study abroad program, produce well-rounded graduates, and we encourage students to pursue these types of opportunities. By studying abroad, students have the chance to see a side of their major that they may not have been exposed to at home. Also, studying abroad is a great way to really experience and understand the host country and its people, its traditions, and its culture.
