The Carmen Twillie Ambar Sophomore Expedition
On October 21, 2017 the Cedar Crest College Board of Trustees announced that the Sophomore Expedition will be renamed the Carmen Twillie Ambar Sophomore Expedition. Former President Ambar was the driving force behind the implementation of the guaranteed study abroad program, and the new name honors her dedication and service to the college. In March of 2018, the Class of 2020 will make the inaugural trip to Rio de Janeiro. The following year, the Class of 2021 will travel to Athens, Greece.
Guaranteed Study Abroad
Cedar Crest makes it a priority to provide each student with a global experience. Starting in the spring of 2018, Cedar Crest College will officially launch the Sophomore Expedition.
Each full-time traditional student (with a 2.5 GPA and in good social and financial standing) will have the opportunity to spend 7-10 days abroad in her sophomore year, at no cost.
Studying abroad is a high-impact experience that invokes a new way of thinking and fosters meaningful life experiences.
