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.
