Ohio Northern Students to Study in South Korea
Ohio Northern University has awarded four fellowships for the Hanyang University Summer program in Seoul South Korea.
Recipients of the awards are Susan Warrington, a fourth-year pharmacy student from Hudson, Ohio; Jessica Riegle, a junior in education and history from Arlington, Ohio; Jarod Patton, a senior in engineering, from Waynesville, Ohio; and Stephanie Wells, a sophomore in political science/Communications from Beavercreek, Ohio.
The students will spend four weeks on the Hanyang campus, and in the final week travel to Xi'an, China. The fellowships include tuition for the program, housing, and the cost to attend the China excursion. Up to nine quarter credit hours can be earned. Each undergrad college awarded one fellowship. The business college released its fellowship because most business students who will study abroad had already made their summer plans. That spot was given to an Arts and Sciences major.
Hanyang University is located in eastern Seoul and is one of the largest and highest ranked universities in Korea. Founded in 1939 as an engineering college, the university has grown to include two campus and two hospitals.
Hanyang University has established partnerships with 173 universities, colleges, and related agencies in 23 countries. Most recently, the university has opened the Graduate/Undergraduate School of International Studies. All of the courses offered in the newly established school are in English.
