For the past five years, Auburn Abroad has offered one-week pre-freshman programs giving first-year students the unique experience of studying abroad before beginning their studies at Auburn. This summer Montreal, Canada was added as a new location option for the pre-freshman program. Students compared differences and similarities in Canada and the United States through completion of a two-credit course titled “The Context of Sustainability – National, Municipal, and Community Choices in Renewable Energy and Resources." Lectures by both Auburn and Canadian faculty illuminated the countries’ approaches to common goals, while excursions to sites in and around Montréal brought the discussions to life. Excursions included hiking Mont Royal, visiting Saint Michel Environmental Complex, a tour of Parliament in the capital city of Ottawa, a wilderness survival course at Kanatha-Aki Center and a meal at a traditional sugar-shack in the forests of Québec.
