Dordt students study off campus

January 5, 2011

Twenty-nine Dordt College students plan to spend the spring semester participating in off-campus study programs.

Students will live, study, and work in other parts of the country and around the world. Some students will be living in Chicago or Los Angeles. International programs will take students to the Netherlands, Spain, Latin America, the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, and Nicaragua.

Off-campus programs allow students to explore global and cross-cultural issues from a biblical perspective. When students are engaged in a culture beside their own, they are able to see how they can contribute to a global society.

“When you live in another culture, you learn more about yourself than you do about that culture—about who you are and how you’ve been shaped by your culture,” said Linda Van Wyk, coordinator of international students and off-campus programs at Dordt College.

As an institution of higher education committed to the Reformed Christian perspective, the mission of Dordt College is to equip students, faculty, alumni, and the broader community to work toward Christ-centered renewal in all aspects of contemporary life.
