Kelley in Korea 2009
An increasing number of IU students are opting for international locales during spring break, where they often travel as part of IU classes. In March 2009, 15 students from the Kelley School of Business joined two other IU student groups in traveling to Seoul, South Korea. A blog of the Kelley students' experiences is available at http://kelleykorea2009.blogspot.com/.
