For the Daily
Sure, we're in the middle of an Ann
Arbor winter. But May is just around
the corner, and now is the time to
plan for those warmer months.
Summer can be a good, productive
time to take on internships or boost
those GPAs with extra classes, but
students itching to get away can do
both on another side of the globe.
The University's Office of
International Programs offers 28
summer programs in countries from
Ghana to Italy, and from Australia to
Thailand. Students can learn another
language, become immersed in a dif-
ferent culture and even decide to live
abroad after graduation. And believe
it or not, all that
The timing of a summer program
can be ideal for busy students, she
said. "Some students just
don't have the time to go
abroad for the semester."
"So having the opportunity
to study from May to June or
July to August gives students
who are pre-med, double-
majoring, in the School of
Business Administration or just
too busy to go abroad during
the academic year, a chance to
have their own experience dur-
ing the summer."
Depending on what type of
experience students are seeking
for, they could live with a family

Cohen, an LSA
senior, spent part of the past academ-
ic year studying in Paris.
"I loved Paris so much that I want
to move there one day," Cohen said.
"My comprehension of French
became nearly perfect and I finally
gained confidence in my ability to
speak to Parisians."
Carol Dickerman, the director of
OIP, said she wants every student to
spend some time abroad.
"Unless you study in another coun-
try, you'll never realize the impact
that it can have on you," Dickerman
an LSA senior who studied abroad
in Florence last year, said that "living
in Florence taught me to adjust to
another kind of lifestyle and to really
appreciate the Italian culture."
Most of the University's summer pro-
grams offer classes Monday through
Thursday, so students can use three-
day-weekends to travel and explore.
Another advantage to spending a
summer studying abroad is the unique
atmosphere, Dickerman said. The sum-
mer program in Saint-Malo, on the
northwest coast of
France, places students in a picturesque
setting that overlooks the sea.
"There is a more relaxed some-
thing about the weather being warm
and having classes taught on the
beach," Dickerman said.

summer 1998 programs - Feb. 27 -
Other universities also offer sum-
mer-abroad programs. To learn about
many of these, University students
