Classmates and faculty gathered to reminisce about cultural and educational experiences shared during their 1975-76 Education Abroad studies in Aalborg, Denmark.
The reunion on Aug. 17 in Bloomington drew nearly 40 including a few guests from Aalborg. The gathering was held at the home of Joel and Terri (Larson) Simon and co-hosted by Jim and Joyce (Benson) Evenson.
The students were among the first from the University to study abroad as part of the program. The Aalborg group lived and studied at the Kong Frederik Hotel with St. Cloud State faculty led by Owen Hagen.
Student experiences included extensive Western European travels, as well as a number of Danish home stays. Since the launch of the Aalborg program, some 10,000 St. Cloud State students and 700 faculty and staff benefitted from education-abroad opportunities in dozens of locations.
