GREEN BAY – Students at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) are spending today preparing to leave for a study abroad program in Thailand.

A group of 20 leave January 7 for an over two-week trip. About half of the students will receive course credit for Diversity Studies. The rest are going on the journey to learn about Thailand’s long history.  For many, it is a chance to explore their own culture and heritage.
