If Jason Yoder were on a desert island and could only take one item with him, he’d bring a Frisbee.

Six international courses will take students across the globe to Nepal, Kenya, Greece, Italy, China, Spain and Morocco – and that’s doesn’t even include the summer Study-Service Term (SST) units in Peru, Senegal and Nicaragua that begin in May.
