Edinboro University takes great pride in its Scottish roots. We’ve got our bagpipers and band, the annual Kilted Mile run during Homecoming, Fighting Scots athletics and, of course, the Royal Stewart tartan that has come to symbolize our university. And right now we’ve also got a very happy group of students enjoying the real thing as part of an exciting study abroad experience!
A group of EU students and professors Gary Grant and Tim Thompson (left) landed in Scotland on August 3 for an exciting two-week travel-learning experience, which includes stops in Edinburgh, Glasgow, St. Andrews, the Isle of Arran and a day trip to the Glencoe Highlands.
This past weekend (Aug. 9-10), the group visited the historic Edinburgh Castle and got to take in the spectacular Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, an annual series of military music performances performed by British Armed Forces, Commonwealth and international military bands on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle. The event takes place throughout August, as part of the wider Edinburgh Festival.
Studying abroad is not only a wonderful enhancement to your education but also a rewarding and life-enriching experience. Many types of study-abroad experiences are available to Edinboro University students, from short-term (2-5 weeks) to a semester or even a year abroad. Financial aid options exist to help make your overseas study possible.
