Studying history where the history happened

Students build their own Stonehenge at the site of the original.

College of Saint Benedict (CSB) and Saint John's University (SJU) students studying in London this semester visited Stonehenge as part of their education abroad experience.  While there, they decided to build a Stonehenge of their own-using their own bodies.  The London trip is one of 17 semester-long, faculty-led study abroad programs at CSB and SJU.

The schools are ranked No. 1 nationally among baccalaureate institutions with students who participate in mid-length study abroad programs, according to Open Doors 2010, the annual report on international education published by the Institute of International Education (IIE).

The two schools had 398 students study abroad in mid-length programs during the 2008-09 school year, according to the most recent data released by the IIE. The IIE defines mid-length duration study abroad programs as those lasting one semester, one quarter or two quarters (CSB and SJU operate under the semester system). CSB and SJU were No. 2 in this category in the 2009 report.

The 2010 report also found that CSB and SJU ranked No. 5 nationally among baccalaureate institutions for total number of study abroad students, with 550 students who studied abroad in 2008-09. Saint Benedict and Saint John's have been among the top six nationally in the number of students participating in international study abroad programs for the past six years, according to the IIE.
