The college study abroad itineraries created for the 2013 and 2014 travel
season include: Vietnam and Cambodia, Japan, India and Antarctica. The
educational tours range between 12-15 days in both summer and winter.

Curriculum on all college study abroad programs includes a heavy focus in
developing the Cultural Intelligence of young leaders. Participants have the
opportunity to earn upper division college credit through Eastern Washington
University, in addition to the certificate of completion they will receive
from People to People. With specially selected leaders from various colleges
and universities, students will leave the program with an enhanced global
perspective poised to enter the work force with a competitive edge.

The new college study abroad programs were created to address the demand for
People to People to extend their educational travel offerings beyond grades
5-12, the travel programs for which the company is famous.

"We have seen heightened interest from students and parents in the past couple
of years to extend our product line into the university domain to continue
that experiential learning track," said Peg Thomas, President of People to
People. "College study abroad programs are the perfect extension of our high
school programs. They travel to destinations that will challenge participants
to think about global issues and gain cultural awareness."

Students who traveled on People to People's inaugural college study abroad
program to India in December 2012 experienced diverse cultures and visited
iconic monuments such as the Taj Mahal and Jama Masjid Mosque.

"The peak moment of the program was the two day service immersion opportunity
in Rajasthan where students explored the homes and lives of Rajasthani
villagers and worked to restore school facilities while staying in a beautiful
tented encampment," said Siena Bendixen-Park, College Program Manager for
People to People.
