Learn Abroad your Sophomore Year

Cedar Crest College Receives NAFSA’s 2023 Senator Paul Simon Spotlight Award

See Where your Education Can Take You

As part of your cultural experience at Cedar Crest College, we see you exploring and learning in another country. The best part? We cover the cost of a global travel experience for every sophomore. We call it the Carmen Twillie Ambar Sophomore Expedition. You’ll call it life-changing.

Where will you go?

Your Sophomore Expedition destination will be revealed during your August Orientation. You may learn you’ll be zip lining through the rainforest, riding camel-back across the desert, or studying ancient Greek architecture! We believe immersing yourself in a global experience opens doors that you never thought possible.

The Sophomore Expedition played a huge role in my decision to come to Cedar Crest. What other institution is going to offer the opportunity to travel abroad — for free — while also being able to apply the experience to your studies? I thought that this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I’m not exaggerating when I say this was an enlightening experience. You never know how this will benefit you in the future.”

“You take so much more away from this experience than if you were sitting in a classroom. As an Education major, being able to work with kids in Costa Rica was a great experience. Actually being able to do it. To see it. It really makes a difference in your learning. “
