Randolph-Macon College: January Term 2007
What can you do in a month? Plenty – if you’re a student at Randolph-Macon College.
Perhaps you’re interested in exploring South Africa on safari, interning with NATO in Belgium, or helping New Orleans families rebuild after Hurricane Katrina.
Experience all these opportunities and more during Randolph-Macon College’s January Term – a creative time during which faculty and students can experiment, explore and dream. The purpose of January Term or “J-term” is to provide R-MC students with unique opportunities: one-of-a-kind study abroad programs, such as the travel course to Romania, during which students can work with area orphanages; new courses that address topics of current interest, including an Economics course where students learn to apply the basic concepts of microeconomics to existing environmental problems; and numerous internship options, such as working with the Dolphin Connection in the Florida Keys. The intensive format of J-term also encourages extensive student-faculty connections, and allows both students and faculty time to immerse themselves in one subject.
And this January, you can join 18 R-MC students – and a faculty member – on their J-term journeys. Throughout the month, they will be posting blog entries with updates on their oversees excursions and internship adventures. So, take a peek as R-MC jumps into January!
