In 2009, Jessica Scott deployed to Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn.  It was a year of many firsts. This is the first-person journey through a combat tour in Iraq, through being a woman in the Army, and learning to be an officer in the unforgiving environment of a brigade combat team. This is the journey of a writer, learning to find her voice.  This is the journey of a mother, confronting the emotions of leaving her children.  This is the story of an inexperienced lieutenant, growing into a leader. 

All students, faculty, and staff from every campus are welcome to participate. Please join us as we read a new work each semester, and connect virtually to discuss the written word.

Tour the World with Berkeley College Online and Georama!

This live event has passed, but you can enjoy the recorded experience on our Sorrento, Italy LibGuide

---------------------------------------------------

Experience the beauty and culture of Italy without ever leaving home. Join Berkeley College for a LIVE Virtual Field Trip to Sorrento, Italy

Tuesday, November 8th at 10 AM ET!

During this one-hour tour, we’ll be immersed in Italian culture as Luca Genovese, Georama’s expert tour guide, takes us through the streets of this beautiful coastal town. From our starting point of Piazza Tasso, we’ll head through the “Valley of the Mills,” then through the city’s main shopping center, Corso Italia, moving into the charming historic lanes of the Old Town Centre, and finally concluding in the Cloister of San Francesco, a medieval cloister dating from the 1300’s.

We’ll be able to direct our guide and ask questions in real time! What a fantastic and authentic way to learn about history, art, architecture, and culture from a distance!

Open to all students, staff, faculty, and friends of Berkeley College!

Italy is the second of four Virtual Field Trips, each to a new continent over the next year. Follow us as we travel the world.
