Imagine building recreational facilities and promoting healthy life choices to children in Russia. Or translating poems into English and watching them turn into a book in Italy. Or quickstepping your way to a national ballroom dance title in England.

For Holy Cross students who participate in Study Abroad programs, these projects are not dreams — they’re a reality.
