SHARON, Pa. — Penn State Shenango hosts the final Faculty Lecture Series of the fall semester on Tuesday, Nov. 15, at 12:15 p.m. featuring Lecturer of Human Development and Family Studies Carol Cowan-Crawford as she discusses the benefits of studying abroad. 

Cowan-Crawford's talk will profile the three-week study opportunity she developed with the guidance of Penn State Global Affairs titled ‘London, United Kingdom: Adulthood and Families.’ which takes place each year in May. While in London, students will explore the area through cultural excursions, academic experiences, as well as university lectures.
