Door is open to Semester in Europe

February 7, 2014

UW-River Falls Semester Abroad: Europe is looking for adventurous, curious, independent-minded students who want the reward of creating and carrying out their own research projects in a European country of their choice. Over 1,000 students from all majors have participated in the program since it began in 1963.

Some recent projects include: dolphin monitoring in Slovenia; an exploration of the musical life of Montpellier, France; geological changes in the lagoon surrounding Venice, Italy; youth unemployment in Spain; storytelling through art in the UK; attitudes toward tourism in Berlin; and laboratory experience at a veterinary research institute in Germany. Semester Abroad: Europe participants also take advantage of a month of independent or small-group travel throughout Europe at the end of the fall semester.

Contact Dr. Charlie Rader, 2014 group leader at or come to the next weekly preparatory meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 11, in 103 Davee Library. The program website is
