Spring Break Travels

NCC Students Abroad

Briana Ventriello, Dan Howis Lauritsen (of State of Green), Briana Saccheri and Samantha JuchemStudents took advantage of opportunities to travel abroad over spring break from Northampton Community College. One group, led by Julie Houston, English professor, traveled to Denmark.

"Students were impressed by Denmark's leadership in technology related to sustainability," Houston says. "The coolest give-away was a box of pencils that could be used as pencils or planted to become vegetables!"

The students attended a presentation on "State of Green," a gateway to Danish green policies and the solutions of companies and organizations at the forefront of green technology and knowhow, from green energy to clean water and resource efficiency.

Other groups from NCC traveled to Turkey, France and Spain over the break.
