Two students who earned graduate degrees from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences who had a chance to visit the University of Zagreb in Croatia have come up with study abroad program ideas that will introduce students studying at North Carolina State University to Croatian culture and agriculture.
One of these students is Suzanne O’Connell, who is a doctoral student in soil science and horticulture and the other is Aaron Fox, who is studying crop science and entomology. They visited Croatia in June 2012 and spent a month in the country. They paid visits to research stations, the University of Zagreb and farms in different parts of Croatia. They sought to explore the study and research exchange program opportunities available to undergraduate and graduate students. They presented what they found out from their research at a college seminar in early October.
