According to Lynn Ewanow, professor, associate dean and director of international programs for the college, students in architecture, interior architecture & product design, landscape architecture and regional & community planning, the experience of living and studying in unfamiliar environments heightens cultural and historical awareness; improves self-reliance; encourages better understanding of global economics, politics and societies; and broadens professional horizons.

"The College of Architecture, Planning & Design is committed to enhancing the study abroad experience for its students and supporting the emphasis on international education, which is part of K-State's strategic plan," Ewanow said. "The APDesign study abroad exhibit includes a summation of each student's academic work and cultural experiences."
