Don’t have a semester to spare?

Emmanuel travel courses are a great opportunity for students who may not want to or be able to commit to a semester or longer-term study abroad program. Why not consider spending spring break in Ireland, summer in Greece, or a few weeks serving others on our service-learning course in South Africa?
