2 0 - l i n f i e l d m a g a z i n e Spring 2017 30 years of global experiences Linfield this year celebrated three decades of off-campus January Term class offerings. Although January Term has been a part of the Linfield curriculum for decades, organizers launched a “redesigned one-month winter term” in 1987 that included a focus on off-campus classes. The students’ culturally academic experiences have been innumerable, and varied. A brief look back: Theresa Schmidt ’08 Health Care in India – 2006; Health Care in China – 2008 “Jan Term provided me with an up-close and personal look into a culture, something I could never experience traveling on my own.” By the numbers Off-campus classes since 1987: • 376 courses • 4,800 student participants (approximate) • 10-12 classes annually • Classes held on six continents Kate McCarthy Lott ’00 Mexico Drawing Expedition – 2000 “We spent one night in this beautiful kitchen making dinner all together and there was so much laughter, history, culture and good food.”
