The West Virginia University Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design will offer an exciting new study-abroad opportunity during spring break in 2015. Culture + Community in El Salvador is a two-credit, one-week program open to all undergraduate and graduate students.

During the week of March 21-28, 2015, students will be immersed in Salvadorian culture in the capital city, San Salvador, before moving to a countryside village in lush, tropical jungles. Here students will live and work alongside locals on a community project. This will be followed by a stay on one of El Salvador’s Pacific Ocean beaches.

“Not only will this be a great way to thaw out after a long, cold winter, this will be a life-changing experience,” said Eli Pollard, a visiting lecturer in fashion, dress and merchandising in the Davis College.
