Global co-op: paying it forward

Helping pedi­atric burn vic­tims in China, adding to an eco-village’s infra­struc­ture in Costa Rica, working on a Hol­ly­wood movie in South Africa. These were just some of the unique expe­ri­ences stu­dents who recently returned from working in far-​​flung coun­tries shared with their peers at the Inter­na­tional Co-​​op Fair on Thursday evening in the Curry Stu­dent Center Indoor Quad.

About 35 vet­erans of inter­na­tional co-​​op shared their sto­ries with some 500 stu­dents who were inter­ested in learning more about the ben­e­fits of co-​​op in another country. The crop of stu­dents who pre­sented at the fair had worked all over the world—from Aus­tralia and Bel­gium to Sin­ga­pore, Antarc­tica, and Greece.
