May Term classes take students around the world (with video)

This year's May Term classes at Roanoke College gave students unique experiences and new views of the world.

From Thailand to Peru, students traveled to 10 different countries.

Of the 12 courses, students studied culture in Japan and Peru, read folklore in Great Britain, did service work in Ghana and much more.

Some other May Term classes stayed stateside. One class hiked in parts of the Southern Appalachian region, another explored bluegrass and old-time music by camping at a music festival and another class took a trip to Outer Banks, North Carolina, where they studied health and happiness.

Watch a video of students' May Term adventures this year, and see photos from various trips below.
