Alumni and friends of Kalamazoo College have two opportunities this year for faculty-led study tours—one a popular and historic European destination, and the other a return to a West African nation with which the College has a long history.

The Archaeology of Identity in Coastal Campania: How Ancient Italians and Greeks Became Romans on the Bay of Naples will be led by Anne Haeckl, Roman archaeologist in the Department of Classics, and Dr. Christopher Gregg of George Mason University. Scheduled for July 30 to August 11, the tour will explore major Roman archaeological site museums.

Kalamazoo College students who studied abroad in Sierra Leone--and even those who did not--may want to join a study tour to Sierra Leone this December with
"Faculty-led study tours in Europe and Africa"
Professor of Anthropology Kiran Cunningham. This 12-day trip takes visitors to the capital, Freetown, and other locations throughout the country. Kalamazoo College administered a study abroad program at Fourah Bay College and Njala University from 1962 to the late 1990s.

We go out to Sierra Leone every year to an orphanage we work with in Freetown. I sure would love to hook up with other K students on a learning tour in the country!
