PIQUA — Community members, employees and students at Edison State Community College are preparing for the March 12-18, 2016, Study Abroad Tour of France, with its distinctive culture, world-class art, iconic landmarks and seaside.
The group will spend the first part of the trip in Orleans and the Loire Valley before traveling to Paris for the balance of the stay. Highlights of the seven days spent studying abroad include touring historical sites, visiting the Eiffel Tower, experiencing French cuisine, and taking in notable museums and gardens.
“We’ve had a lot of great experiences so far, and we are gearing up now for an amazing cultural experience in France,” said Eileen Thompson, Edison Study Abroad coordinator. “Also, everything is arranged including airfare, hotels, food, transportation and sightseeing. It’s an intense time of learning where all the details are arranged, yet at the same time, it’s an unforgettable adventure.”
Edison Study Abroad is open to students for college credit as well as family and community members. “For first time or seasoned travelers, making new friends while traveling is what makes Edison’s study abroad trips so unique and enjoyable,” added Thompson.
With a price of just over $3,000, the trip includes round-trip airfare from Dayton, many meals, lodging, admission to all historic sites, and a free day at the end of the tour means that travelers can opt, at their own expense, to spend the day as they please.
A limited number of spaces are available for the Study Abroad trip to France and registration is preferred by Dec. 1. For more information, visit www.edisonohio.edu/France2016. To speak with a Study Abroad Coordinator, call Eileen Thompson at 937-778-7914 or Steve Sykes at 937-778-7946.
