What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
s Two friends to study by Laurel Cifala Staff Writer Peter Lampson and John Tierney will board a plane this September, embarking on a jour ney that any student would envy. The two will be studying in Florence, Italy for the 2005-2006 academic year. “It’s going to be an amazing experience,” said Tierney, a sopho more international business and accounting major.

Shannon Ackeret, assistant director of Study Abroad, encour ages Carroll students to study abroad to enhance their education al experience as well as experience individuals, cultures and ideas from around the world. Carroll’s Study Abroad Program offers semester and year-long programs as well as several short-term pro grams throughout the year. It also helps students work with other schools’ programs like Gonzaga’s Florence program. Lampson and Tierney didn’t plan on studying abroad together; they both explored other programs before set tling on Gonzaga-in- Florence. Lampson, a sophomore majoring in business manage ment, was impressed with Gonzaga’s program in Florence. “Florence is full of historical artwork, monuments, churches and markets. Gonzaga’s program is in the heart of Florence and incorpo rates this history and culture into its classes,” he said. “I enjoy traveling,” said Lampson. “I decided on Gonzaga’s program because my mom and sis ter have gone with Gonzaga-in- Florence and encouraged me to go too.” “That and the Italian women are gorgeous,” Lampson added with a wink. Lampson and Tierney will arrive in Munich, Germany with the rest of the stu dents on Sept. 16 and spend a week to 10 days travel ing in Germany. Oktoberfest is the high light of this part of the trip. They will start classes in Florence after this in late September. The new Gonzaga-in-Florence center looks onto the Giardine dei Semplici, a 16th Century garden created by the Medici family. It is a few steps from the frescos of Fra Angelico painted for the San Marco monastery and from Michelangelo’s David housed in the Academy of Fine Arts. \/ see this as a great opportunity to explore the world...There’s never going to be a bet ter time to do this.

The two will return home April 22, 2006. “I see this as a great opportunity to explore the world. I have a cousin in Rome who’s been encouraging me to study abroad, so I figured what the hell. There’s never going to be a better time to do this. I can’t wait,” said Tierney.

While in Warsaw, they also visited the site of Treblinka, which was a Holocaust death camp. “Visiting Treblinka was a deeply moving experience,” said sophomore psychology major, Caroline Webster, from Seattle. After their stay in Warsaw, the group traveled to Krakow and from there to the Center for Dialogue and Prayer at Auschwitz. “Walking into Auschwitz, where so many had died, was a very emotional time on the trip,” said sophomore history major Bonnie Newton from Coram, Mont.
