Students from two Burlington educational institutions met up on Thursday and Friday, 22-23 April. Not in Burlington, but in Dublin, Ireland. Sixteen students and two teachers from Champlain Valley Union High School were hosted by Champlain College students studying abroad at Champlain’s Dublin campus.
The CVU students are taking a course on International Business that includes 11 days in Ireland, where they have been exposed to the rich history and culture of Ireland, as well as the stunning landscapes of the Emerald Isle. A goal of the course was to expose the students to a Vermont-based organization that has expanded abroad. Course instructor Tamie-Jo Dickinson said that ’Champlain College fit that criteria nicely, and their willingness to collaborate with CVU helped ensure the students had impactful cultural and business exposure on the trip’.
