Penn State study abroad rankings

From today’s Penn State Newswire

Penn State ranks 12th among study abroad programs

Penn State's University Park campus was ranked 12th among U.S. doctorate-granting universities with the most students studying abroad in 2006-07, according to the 2008 Open Doors report published annually by the Institute of International Education. According to the report released Monday (Nov. 17), 1,830 Penn State students attending University Park were studying abroad.

In our own program in Rome, we have been working hard to help  other professors and graduate students (our future professors) to experience Rome with our students.
