Study Abroad in Mexico

Students visiting Mexico as part of a study abroad experience

 

In Summer 2017, students joined Dr. Mark Chen on a trip to Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey (“Tec” for short) in Pachuca, Mexico. Along with engaging lectures on the vibrant Mexican culture given by the faculty at Tec, students participated in weekly service learning projects in several communities. They participated in social entrepreneurial projects to promote rural economic development. The group also explored Hidalgo, Mexico City, the Aztec pyramids of Teotihuacan, and the archeological site of Tula de Allende.

“The highlight of pursuing my degree was the time I spent studying abroad in Mexico. The department offers a summer study abroad opportunity to a different country every summer. While in Mexico I learned so much about their culture and had a fantastic time.” – Keveon Taylor
