Associate Professor of Business Andrea Lynch, who coordinated the trip, listened to students' presentations with fascination. "We all went into the trip with different perspectives and got different things out of it," she said. Of the 23 students who participated in Mercer's inaugural Study Tours experience, some were enrolled in Professor Marilyn Dietrich's "International Architecture and Culture" course, some came from dePagnier's "Food and Culture" course, and still others traveled as noncredit students.
