The Places They’ll Go…
A time-honored tradition for college students is to take part in study-abroad programs. This has always been a challenge for student-athletes with their playing and training schedules to participate, until several years ago when summer programs were created that worked through those challenges. This summer, student-athletes from 14 different teams will be studying in eight different countries. Bon voyage and safe travels to this crew!
