Fall 2017

End of Semester Greetings

Happy holidays! Today is Christmas Eve and our fall 2017 semester program ended yesterday. Over the past four months our students immersed themselves in Korean culture and society by joining student clubs, spending time with Korean friends, exploring the country, and participating in CIEE activities, workshops and excursions. Here we take a look back through photos.

Cultural Activities

Students are putting the finishing touches on the boxes they created in our CIEE paper-crafts class, a Korean traditional handicraft.
