NECC Professor will Share How to Travel Internationally on a Budget

Marcy Yeager, coordinator of NECC's International Studies Program

Northern Essex Community College Professor Marcy Yeager has traveled to far-flung locations around the globe and during August she will share her travel trips at two free presentations at local libraries.

Yeager, who is coordinator of Northern Essex’s International Studies Program, believes that everyone can afford to travel, and she will share tips on how to see the most while spending the least.

Titled “International Travel: Jet Setting 101: You can see the world on a budget!”, her presentation will be held on August 20 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Wilmington Memorial Library, 175 Middlesex Avenue and on August 22 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Haverhill Public Library, 99 Main Street.

A professor of Natural Sciences at Northern Essex since 2003, Yeager was named department chairperson shortly after joining the college. She served in this role until 2010.

Yeager celebrates her interest in the South American Rainforest by teaching a course there every other year. She has also volunteered on a small farm/ecotourism center in Ecuador during the summer. This summer, she led a group of NECC students on a study abroad trip in Belize.

Recognizing the importance of international study and travel in today’s world, Northern Essex’s study abroad program allows students to experience another language and culture while taking courses that fit into their curricula. Past programs have included studies in England, France, Ecuador, Spain, and others. For students not able to dedicate an entire semester abroad, Northern Essex also offers a short-term travel study program with trips approximately 10 days in length.

This presentation is part of the college’s speakers’ bureau which provides speakers free of charge to area nonprofits.
