Dr. John Dolis, coordinator of International Programs and professor of English at Penn State Worthington Scranton, led a group of faculty and students on a trip to Prague, Czech Republic, for this year’s spring break trip.

 

Each year, during spring break, the campus runs an international trip as part of its participation in the University’s International Studies Programs, offering students an opportunity to visit a foreign country and experience another culture.

 

During the 2013 trip to Prague, students toured a variety of cultural sites such as Prague Castle, St. Vitus Cathedral, St. George's Basilica, The Franz Kafka Museum, the Jewish Cemetery, Museum and Synagogue, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, and Wenceslas Square.

 

The group also enjoyed frequenting the diverse shops, cafes, restaurants, and jazz venues throughout Prague.
