Spin the Wheel Scholarship

Join us on Wednesday, January 29th at 3:30 pm to find out who wins!

The Spin the Wheel Scholarship is a summer study-abroad experience, with complete program costs and airfare covered by the University. All of the potential locations were listed on the wheel. There were two spots on the wheel, one labeled "President's Choice" and one labeled "Student's Choice." A spin of the wheel determined students' study abroad location from some of the amazing options below!!! 

Some of 2019's potential locations were:

Costa Rica



Israel & Egypt
