February 17, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – The Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) has selected
four Illinois Wesleyan students to participate in a week-long program at Yonsei University
in Seoul, South Korea.
The Illinois Wesleyan participants in this program are Ryan Nielsen, a sophomore
international studies major from Woodridge, Ill.; Katie Sill, a sophomore international
studies and English-writing major from Highland Village, Texas; Ivy Craig, a first-year
international studies major from McLean, Ill.; and Aoife O’Connor, a first-year international
studies major from Rochester, Minn.
The program, which is sponsored by CIEE and the Korea Foundation, pays for all international
and local travel costs, housing, meals, lectures, and cultural events for the 75 United
States students participating. The goal of CIEE is to enhance goodwill and friendship
through its programs and allows students to learn about Korean culture first hand
through the South Korea Scholarship program.
