Austria & Spain programs: 50th Anniversary reunion!

St. Lawrence University is honored to celebrate the 50th Anniversaries of its abroad programs in Austria and Spain in 2017.

We would like to invite you to join us in Canton, N.Y. during Reunion Weekend (June 2 - 4) this spring for a celebration of this important milestone. We are thrilled to have our long-time Austrian and Spanish partners on campus for the celebrations:

  • Hermann Weissgärber, Director of the Austro-American Institute of Education, will join us and will share a retrospective of the Austria program and the relationship between St. Lawrence University and the AAIE.
  • Judith Deshotels, the beloved coordinator of the Spain program in Madrid for more than 30 years, and Rita Goldberg, Professor Emerita, will also be on campus for the celebration

Our off-campus programs have expanded in number to encompass the entire world, but Spain and Austria are still among our most popular and treasured offerings. We hope you will be able to join us to share your own piece of this great history with the many Laurentians who have lived and learned in Austria over the last 50 years.

Please help us get the word out by encouraging alumni to return to Canton in June. Be sure to mark your calendars for June 2 - 4. The 50th anniversary celebrations of the Austria and Spain Abroad Program is one you don’t want to miss.
