These global education programs run twice per academic year. The Pre-Spring Vietnam program will run from Wednesday, December 28, 2022–Saturday, January 7, 2022, and the Spring Break Spain program will run from Saturday, March 4, 2022–Saturday, March 11, 2022. Priority will be given to current/former students in the EPICS program.
