Press Release

Up, up, and to the Pacific North West

2/1/2017 Cedar City, UT

The international student Saskia Koch participated in a national exchange program to University of Washington during the academic year 2015-2016 to experience a different culture in the United States.

For the project, Saskia Koch focused on the culture in Seattle, made sure she took classes that weren’t offered at Southern Utah University, and wanted to find a career path to take after she will be finished with her Bachelor in April 2017. For this, she visited the typical tourist attractions, emerged into the culture, and participated in events offered in Seattle. The classes she took included: The Rise of the Gothic Novel, Feminist Approaches to Science Fiction, and Greek and Roman Mythology.

Within the frame of the EDGE project, students are encouraged to participate in projects that are beyond the limits of the classroom and broaden the learning opportunities for students in their fields or for personal development.
