Each spring semester, approximately 20 students from Sven Eriksonsgymnasiet in Borås, Sweden, come to study at Santa Rosa Junior College for five weeks. They are in their final semester of a three-year Entrepreneurship Program, training to become business professionals who can work with people with diverse perspectives, cultures, and languages. While at SRJC, the students take classes in Marketing, Business English, Political Science, California Literature, and Physical Education.
Some extra-curricular activities are organized by the program, but the key to the program is the opportunity to live with local host families—faculty, staff, and community members—and experience American life firsthand. Whether visiting local sites, taking a hike, watching a movie, or enjoying a home-cooked meal, students develop important cultural insights and improve their English skills.
