Studying further abroad

An article about the tendency of American college students to study abroad in very Americanized settings published in the Montgomery, Ala.-based Adviser, quoted William Finlay, a professor of sociology at UGA.

“Unless something is set up that really forces them to get involved in that environment, they really don’t,” said Finlay, who set up a new, intensive program that takes Georgia students to work in impoverished South African townships. “We push them to do things that are uncomfortable. Sometimes they get overwhelmed.”
