Global Scholars 2017 Travel Opportunities Presentation
We will hold an informational night highlighting the 2017 travel opportunities on Tonight, December 3rd at 6pm in the BBX Theater.
The trips are part of the Global Scholars Program we started two years ago. At the conclusion of the presentation students will have the opportunity to register for the 2017 trips. Space is limited and students will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis. For your convenience, I have included a link to the detailed itinerary of each trip. Please note, the China service learning trip has been replaced by a service learning opportunity in Peru.
On-Site Dual Enrollment
As part of our new dual enrollment program we are offering a 4 credit, college level Intro. to Engineering course. MCC was kind enough to offer us a grant waiving the tuition charge for up to 20 GD students. In addition, there will be a $50 book rebate to help offset the cost of the required textbooks. Any student interested in engineering is welcome to take advantage of this opportunity. Yesterday I held a brief assembly with interested students outlining the opportunity. You are welcome to view the Intro. to Engineering Power Point Presentation
