SELINSGROVE - Susquehanna University student Chris Rowe, of Coal Township, is studying at Dublin City University this fall in Dublin, Ireland.

Rowe, a junior majoring in history and secondary education, is a 2011 graduate of Shamokin Area Middle/High School. He is the son of Chris and Virginia Rowe.

Study away is an integral part of a Susquehanna education. Susquehanna is distinguished by its Global Opportunities (GO) program, which requires all students to spend at least two weeks off campus, immersed in a culture different from their own.

Currently, Susquehanna students can choose from study-away programs ranging from a few weeks to as long as a full semester, in Africa, Asia, Australia, South America, Europe, New Orleans and Washington, D.C., among other options.
