Davis, Calif. – During two weeks in July, visiting students from Sangju, South Korea received an Honorary Citizenship Award from Ruth Asmundson, the former mayor of the city of Davis.
The high school students are part of the International Youth Programs offered through the UC Davis Division of Continuing and Professional Education, International. “Sangju is a sister city of Davis,” said Trish Reiff, Director of the division’s International Youth Programs. “Each summer students from Sangju who attend our Youth Programs are presented with an Honorary Citizenship award from the City of Davis, while taking part in a custom program consisting of a series of English classes, afternoon activities, cultural tours and evening activities.”
Designed to give international students an enriching educational experience, the international Youth Program introduces junior and high school students to the world-class UC Davis campus, allowing them to take advantage of the campus’ academic breadth and outside-of-the-classroom programs. Students sharpen their conversational English and listening skills and immerse themselves in U.S. culture.
