"The cost per student to study
abroad would be relatively cheap."
Wheeler said. The cost of the pro-
gram is comparable with the
money that out-of-state students
pay to attend the University. The
programs of other colleges have
"package costs" amounting to not
more than $2,300.
'U' Students Study Abroad
"About 12 to 15 University stu-
dents attend foreign schools each
year," Wheeler said. For the first
time he has entered the names of
students who have come to him
for advice and who intend to
spend their junior year abroad. He
has a list of about 67 students who
have spoken to him this year.
