In continuation of Independence Day festivities, during the month of July, our USC International Accelerator Program students took a special field trip to Lake Murray. For those who don't know, Lake Murray is one of the major recreation destinations for central South Carolina residents, and it's only a 30-minute drive from campus! At 41 miles long and 14 miles wide at its widest point, Lake Murray has 649 miles of shoreline. Whether you're looking to enjoy swimming off the shore at the beaches, parks or recreation areas, or looking to take a relaxing boat ride or possibly ready for a water skiing adventure, Lake Murray has something for everyone! Each year, residents enjoy a beautiful fireworks show in honor of Independence Day. This summer, our students got to experience it for themselves!

Earlier this month, our students adventured out to Sullivan's island on a field trip as part of their Marine Science 210 class called "Oceans and Society". This class is a unique course designed to immerse international students in the rich biology and geography of South Carolina's beaches. It gives students a more comprehensive understanding of the unique region where they're living. A trip to the beach to investigate South Carolina's coastline and marine life is the perfect way to get some hands on experience!
