Professor of Sociology Roger Nemeth traveled to London and Berlin February 14-20 as part of IES Abroad's Familiarization Trip Program. He was selected as part of a national competition designed to help professors investigate study abroad opportunities in their disciplines. Program participants developed first-hand familiarity with all facets of IES Abroad London Center, London Residence Hall, and Berlin Metropolitan Studies Program through visiting the IES Abroad Center facilities, touring local partner universities, attending classes, visiting student accommodations, and meeting IES Abroad students, staff, and faculty. In addition, attendees had the chance to explore the program locations through cultural activities and regional excursions. Nemeth has served as a sociology professor at Hope College since 1983. He has extensive international experience having taught and conducted research in Japan, the Phillipines, Egypt, Korea, and the Netherlands.
