As the 2013-14 academic year draws to a close, many Asian Studies majors and minors are preparing to travel and study in Asia. In Japan, Katrina Frailey ’16 will spend fall 2014 at Kansai Gaidai University while Jennifer Adams ’16 will spend the entire 2014-15 academic year at Kyushu University. Also in Japan, Bethany Butters ’15, Nick Riley ’15, and Brittany Welch ’15 will accompany Professor Jeff Richey as participants in the Kentucky Institute for International Studies (KIIS)’ summer program, and Jaimah Pyburn ’16 will join three other Bereans for a summer internship at the Kiyosato Education Experiment Project (KEEP). Meanwhile, Erica Berejnoi ’16, Hollister Doty-Griner ’15, and a dozen other students will travel and learn with Professors Rebecca Bates and Robert Foster in China this summer. Including other students and faculty who will participate in these and other programs, over two dozen Bereans will spend part or all of the coming academic year in Asia. The Asian Studies Program is proud of these students and faculty and grateful for the invaluable assistance provided to them by our campus’ Center for International Education and Office of Internships.
