The world is a big, beautiful place full of diverse experiences and cultures. We believe every student needs to see it. That’s why we cover the cost of a global travel experience for every sophomore. You may find yourself ziplining through the rainforest, riding camel back across the desert, or studying ancient Greek architecture! The Carmen Twillie Ambar Sophomore Expedition is only at Cedar Crest College.
The Sophomore Expedition played a huge role in my decision to come to Cedar Crest. What other institution is going to offer the opportunity to travel abroad — for free — while also being able to apply the experience to your studies? I thought that this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I’m not exaggerating when I say this was an enlightening experience. You never know how this will benefit you in the future."

“You take so much more away from this experience than if you were sitting in a classroom. As an Education major, being able to work with kids in Costa Rica was a great experience. Actually being able to do it. To see it. It really makes a difference in your learning. "
