The 13-day program will take place May 21 through June 2.  Participating students will have the opportunity to earn up to nine college credits while they explore the capitol city of Quito, the Galapagos Islands, and the Amazon Basin.  During the informational session, attendees will preview a slideshow and hear a discussion about the natural environments and current ecological issues of these unique regions which will reflect some of the study abroad program course topics.  Anyone interested in learning more about the program is invited to attend the session.
