Senior French students recently toured the Rodin exhibit at the SU gallery on November 13th. The exhibit, Rodin: The Human Experience/Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collections, presented 28 figures in bronze by Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), the French sculptor, considered in his lifetime to be the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo.
Included in the exhibition was the standing sculpture of Jean de Fiennes, one of six figures in bronze that comprise Auguste Rodin’s monumental The Burghers of Calais.
Students also met with Cazenovia resident Mary Fedorko, Assistant Director of Admissions at the SU study abroad office to learn about the benefits, scholarships, and programs available for study abroad at the university level. While abroad, students have the opportunity for great academic and personal growth. The experience, whether long or short-term, will increase one’s confidence, adaptability, and cultural sensitivity. Students take ownership of language learning and become more independent as they gain global experience. In addition to academic programs, there is access to field study seminars, cultural immersion through homestays, and professional internships. So many programs, scholarships, and possibilities!
