DANVILLE, KYWho says theres a problem with French-U.S. relations? Rising junior Chelsea Wessel and other Centre students had a great time making new French friends this summer while they studied abroad in Strasbourg, France.
Wessel, a biology major from Evansville, Ind., writes of her cordial encounters with the French in her travel journal. To read it, visit http://www.centre.edu/web/admission/traveljournals/wessel_strasbourg.html.
Wessel was one of 10 Centre students who studied for three weeks in Strasbourg as a part of Centre's new summer study abroad program. She enjoyed learning about the countrys history, hiking in the Vosges Mountains and the dining experiences. She even found what she dubbed the French version of Centres Cowan Dining Commons where she enjoyed fruits that will just melt in your mouth.
She says her time there helped to defeat negative stereotypes shed heard about France and was an experience that will change the rest of my life.
