Which football team will USAC students root for today?

12/30/2008 | By: Staff Report  |

The University of Nevada, Reno's University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) has included the University of Maryland since 2007. Students from both campuses study abroad together on many USAC programs, where they share classes, adventures, and forge common bonds. Last semester alone, twenty-four students from the University of Maryland studied abroad on USAC programs.

In light of this camaraderie on foreign soil, it will be interesting to see if gloves come off briefly during today's Roady's Humanitarian Bowl when the Nevada Wolf Pack faces off against the Maryland Terrapins at 1:30 p.m. in Boise, Idaho.

Tim Palmer, a communications major at the University of Maryland, and Megan Harkovitch, a Nevada nutritional sciences major, studied together in Madrid last semester. Back then they were two American students sharing the thrill of living and studying overseas. But now that they’re back on their home turf, will there be any sympathies for an opposing football team?

USAC is a non-profit study abroad organization made up of 33 American member universities housed on the Nevada campus. USAC has been providing quality study abroad opportunities for more than 25 years and currently offers 39 program sites in 25 countries. Summer, semester and yearlong programs are available and students can earn university credit on all USAC programs. For more information, please visit usac.unr.edu or call 866-404-USAC.
