Three Bay Area Residents Among Largest Study Abroad Group

Published: January 27, 2004
Three bay area residents are among The University of Tampa’s 38 students journeying overseas this semester to 22 schools in nine countries on four continents, plus the multinational Semester at Sea.  

It is by far the largest UT study abroad group yet in a program that has grown exponentially. Last spring, 27 students participated in the program, and the returning group from fall numbered 24. In the fall 2002 semester, 16 students participated, and in spring 2002, only 10 shipped out. The spring 2004 figure registers a nearly 400 percent increase in two years.


Of the three bay area residents in this spring’s group, Brandi Keith, a senior history major, and Robin Schwarm, a senior marketing major, are both headed for England’s renowned Oxford University, while Ryan Lester, a junior communication major, is off to Richmond, the American International University in England. All three students are residents of Tampa.
