Park and Politics Students: Spend the Summer in Africa


Contributed by Melissa Gattine

Each year, two students with majors in the Roy H. Park School of Communications or politics are selected as recipients of the Reginald Simmons '75 Memorial Award. The award allows students to participate in Operation Crossroads Africa (OCA), America's premier cross-cultural exchange program designed to promote understanding of Africa and its culture.

The 2013 OCA summer program runs from June 15 to August 10. Projects are currently scheduled in the following countries: Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Benin, Niger, Senegal and Togo.
