READING, PA (08/26/2022)-- Ryan Elmore of Barrington, N.J., has been named to Albright College's inaugural class of 15 Global Scholars. The group of first year students arrived on campus a day early, and will be housed together in a living learning community throughout their first year, while taking a series of courses together in the fall and spring semesters. Elmore is a graduate of Haddon Heights High School majoring in the alpha program at Albright.
Included in the program is a January study away experience during which Global Scholars explore a particular topic with Albright faculty who are teaching the Scholars' fall and spring courses. The first cohort will study Spanish together, aiding in their study abroad exploration of South America. Using Cuenca, Ecuador as a base, students will live with a host family for several weeks while learning from Albright faculty about comparative cultures. Future Global Scholars study away locations include Costa Rica, Ecuador, France, Ghana, Mexico and Spain. Employment opportunities to mentor incoming program participants will be available for second year Global Scholars.
