BRIDGE Project Featured in FLT

While studying in Hanoi last fall, William Smith juniors Gretchen Lasda and Nicole Traino communicated electronically via a threaded discussion board, describing their experiences and answering questions from the local students, as part of the BRIDGE project. BRIDGE stands for Bringing Relevant Dialogue to Global Education, and aims to enhance the curriculum of local elementary school students by giving them a near first-hand look at life in another country. Lasda's and Traino's experiences with the project, as well as a few words from BRIDGE director Scott Brophy and President Mark Gearan, were featured in the March 23 Finger Lakes Times story “Bringing the world to Geneva”.
