On March 11, 300 first-year students from Agnes Scott College returned from their SUMMIT Global Journeys trips, a week-long program where students traveled abroad.

Throughout the week, students were immersed within the culture of 16 different locales around the globe, according to an Agnes Scott press release. Students did a “deep-dive” into each destinations’ cultural history and critically explored a topic of study.

Some of the trips included studying fashion, ethics and capitalism in France, visual arts and poetry in Chile and women and leadership in Ghana. After the trip in their first year, students continue to focus on “leadership and global learning” in their sophomore, junior and senior years at Agnes Scott College, the release said.

Agnes Scott College was recently ranked by U.S News & World Report as the No.1 Most Innovative School among national liberal arts colleges and No. 2 for Best Undergraduate Teaching.
