Rick Steves touts importance of study abroad

Rick Steves, travel writer, host and producer of "Rick Steves' Europe" on public TV and "Travel with Rick Steves" on public radio, will appear at Oklahoma Christian University on March 10.

In this column Steves wrote for USA Today, he discusses the importance of a study abroad experience as part of a college education.

Oklahoma Christian University's vibrant Study Abroad program deepens and broadens students' intellectual, social, spiritual and aesthetic awareness as they study, travel and serve in other cultures.

OC Study Abroad opportunities offer experiential learning at its best - history, religion, philosophy, art and literature come alive as students link their study with their experience.

The world becomes the classroom, with the chance to hike the Great Wall, snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, visit Mayan ruins, explore the Coliseum in Rome and many other magnificent historical sites.

The Study Abroad program also stretches and strengthens students' faith through service and mission opportunities with churches, shelters and communities around the world.
