BACKGROUND: Rust College began the program began in 1992

to give kids a chance to see the history and culture of Africa.

DESCRIPTION: There is one session five-week session each

year in May and June. The study abroad program is a unique

opportunity to study Africa’s many cultures relative to family,

economics, politics, and education. This program takes place

in Gambia and Ghana. Students spend five weeks studying

under the tutelage of African scholars from the continent and

the United States. Classes range from English literature to

business and communications. There is also time for the students

to engage in extracurricular activities with friends. The

students can live in college dorms, local homes, or hotels as

they explore the culture and language of an exotic country.

OUR TAKE: It’s a great experience for any high school student.

Plus, it offers college credit, which will make your student

well prepared for the future college experience. Study abroad

programs are on the rise, since much of the job market asks

people to communicate with others from different countries.

OUR RECOMMENDATION: This program is a once in a lifetime

experience that can change your child and provide him or her

with an understanding of African American culture. Research

the program and call the director for more information. If the

program is as impressive as Mr. Stovall, it’s a worthwhile

experience.
