first_imgSubmitted by Saint Martin’s UniversitySaint Martin’s University study abroad program is expanding to include a wider variety of countries.The Saint Martin’s University Study Abroad program is partnering with a new affiliate provider to add three more host countries to the university’s pre-approved list, as well as provide a broader range of programs designed to ease the application and acceptance process for students.Brazil, Czech Republic and South Africa are the new destinations for Saint Martin’s students as the result of an agreement forged with the CEA Academic Affiliate Program. The CEA was founded in 1997 in Chicago, Illinois as Cultural Experiences Abroad, which is now headquartered in Tempe, Arizona. CEA is an independent service provider that works with foreign universities to provide access to education abroad for U.S. and Canadian undergraduate students interested in exploring global issues in exciting global cities.The organization’s signature Study Abroad Centers in six countries have earned CEA a reputation as an innovator in education abroad.“I am thrilled to be partnering with such a great provider who has carefully selected locations endowed with cultural, political and/or financial significance, as well as academic resources appropriate to North American needs,” says Brenda Burns, study abroad coordinator at Saint Martin’s. “I think these programs hold a wealth of opportunities for our community and I am excited to see students taking advantage of them.”The partnership with CEA also enables Saint Martin’s to offer new programs in several other countries, such as Costa Rica, Spain and Argentina, that have lesser language requirements, thereby easing the way for students who want to study in those locations.“Additionally, since we are an official affiliate program, Saint Martin’s students will automatically receive study abroad scholarships from CEA and will be eligible for several others through the organization,” Burns says.The CEA partnership follows another major step Saint Martin’s took last spring to expand its Study Abroad program by joining the Institute of International Education’s (IIE) Generation Study Abroad initiative to double the number of American students who study overseas by the end of the decade. The University has committed to tripling its number of undergraduate students who study abroad during the next five years.For more information about the CEA Academic Affiliate Program, please visit http://www.ceastudyabroad.com/educators/educator-about.html.Students can also learn more about other education abroad opportunities by visiting the Saint Martin’s University Study Abroad website and by contacting Brenda Burns at bburns@stmartin.edu or at 360-438-4521.Saint Martin’s University is an independent, four-year, coeducational university located on a wooded campus of more than 300 acres in Lacey, Washing­ton. Established in 1895 by the Catholic Order of Saint Benedict, the University is one of 14 Benedic­tine colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and the only one west of the Rocky Mountains.

That’s a good thing. No one is coming in today and wishing it was still summer. It’s the best time of the year. Basketball season is back up, baseball season is on its way to the playoffs, and the NFL is in Week 4. So what could you ask for as a sports fan?”James naturally becomes the center of attention on any team, and he quickly assumed a leadership role for the Lakers. He’s also eager to see his veteran teammates assert themselves to help the Lakers’ young returning core, whether it’s Rajon Rondo instructing his fellow guards on assignments, or Lance Stephenson vocally calling out defensive instructions in half-court work.“He’s LeBron. He’s one name,” Rondo said. “It speaks for itself. He’s been a leader and a mentor in this league for a long time, on and off the court. He has a blueprint off the court as well. So he embraces his role. He embraces all the pressure that he’s ever dealt with in his career, and he’s always risen above the occasion.”Although Walton and James are just getting to know each other, the coach is grateful that his new star is leading by example from the opening practice.The Lakers have lacked this level of respected on-court leadership in the two seasons since Kobe Bryant’s retirement, but LeBron and his fellow new veterans have strong ideas about how an NBA team must approach its work to be a winner.ADVERTISEMENT The Lakers have many weeks of work ahead to become a cohesive team assembled around James, but he can already sense they’re heading down the right path. They’re planning to have plenty of fun along the way, too.“I’m not a very patient guy, but I understand that I have to be patient right now,” James said. “I’ve got to be patient with myself, too, because this is a new start for me. It’s my first year in a new system. I know how to play the game of basketball, but this is all new to me, too. So I have to be patient with myself, not only with my teammates.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissJames was both upbeat and businesslike after his first workout under coach Luke Walton, who entered the NBA in the same draft class as James in 2003.

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Although the Lakers’ first official practice of the LeBron James era was focused on defense and learning new terminology, they ended it with a good old-fashioned 3-point shooting contest.The Lakers’ new superstar was just another teammate during the spirited back-and-forth competition Tuesday. When James wasn’t draining his own 3s, he marveled along with everybody else at the surprising perimeter prowess shown by JaVale McGee, the 7-foot veteran with exactly one 3-pointer during a game in his 10-year NBA career.ADVERTISEMENT Lomachenko to box at Garden in return from shoulder surgery Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college View commentslast_img read more
