By Sara Scheler, Managing Editor

The Academic Enrichment Center is offering a new student living opportunity, designed to promote cultural learning and awareness at the Priory Campus.

Global Discovery Ambassadors will live with traditional Dominican students and international English Language Studies students in Aquinas Hall May 25 through August 14. The AEC will facilitate several weekly events including cultural awareness discussions, Sunday evening international suppers and events and meals downtown. Students will also go through the process of applying for a passport.

The AEC offers scholarships for this pilot program and a certificate or academic credit can be obtained upon completion. Interested students are invited to contact Paul Simpson or attend an information session Tuesday, April 14 at 2:30 in the Library Link room 100A or Thursday, April 16 at 11:00 in the Lewis Lounge.
