Spend your Fall Semester traveling the length of the Mississippi River–from source to sea, with stops in St. Louis, Memphis, New Orleans, and countless small communities along the way.
During the River Semester, all students take four courses, earning a total of 16 credits.
The experiential nature of this program is a key factor to learning. Between the actual paddling of the canoes, we will also have excursions to towns along the river, have guest speakers, and visit local organizations. These activities will tie in the subject matter with real-world experiences and stories.
Full financial aid applies., and students can also apply for one of the Pentair Scholarships, worth up to $3,000 toward the cost of the program.
