ACT welcomes Study Abroad students
During the week of September 12, 2016, ACT welcomed over 200 incoming study abroad students from more than 20 universities across the United States. The cohort includes students for the ninth year of cooperation with the N.U.in Program from Northeastern University. The majority of this year's cohort are STEM majors, reflecting a growing trend across the US of students in the Science and Technology fields seeking opportunities to study abroad. The vast majority of the incoming class of study abroad students will remain with ACT for the duration of one semester before returning to their home school. The semester long program offers students rigorous academics, ample opportunities to engage in service to the community, cultural excursions, resume-building enrichment activities and workshops. The multi-national makeup of ACT's student body offers an rich environment for cross-cultural exchanges of ideas and ACT welcomes the shared knowledge and experience of the incoming study abroad class by offering three places on the Student Government Association (SGA).
