Spending January In Greece
Russell Murray of Ocean Isle
Beach and F.ric Kronenwetter of
Calabash are among 21 students
trom St. Andrews College in
Laurinbutg spending J anuaiy in
Greece on a study tour.
Working with philosophy profes
sor Dr. Richard C. Prust. the stu
dents will use clues from archaeolo
gy. art history and literature to re
construct what life was like in the
fifth century B.C.
The group will spend about half
the month in Athens, touring archae
ological sites including Olympia.
where the Olympic games were first
held. Other sites scheduled for ex
ploration include Corinth. Mycenae
and Delphi. They will take an
overnight ship trip to the island of
Crete, where they will spend several
days and explore Knossos. a 1.2(H)
room palace built around 23(K) B.C.
"People living in that part of the
world during that time are of partic
ular interest because they were
emerging from pre-literacy into lit
eracy, challenging mythological
thinking and beginning to look at the
world analytically." Prust said.
The trip to Greece is being made
during winter term, a month-long
program held by St. Andrews each
January that gives students opportu
nities to study abroad, pursue inten
sive study of one subject or partici
