Delaware Valley College has 21 students visiting from Tradium, a College in Denmark. The students arrived Sept. 10 and will be staying through Sept. 26. The goal of the program is to give the students exposure to American business, English, and history. DelVal is hoping to build a relationship with Tradium so that students from the College can visit Denmark as exchange students in the future.

The Tradium students include: Agnete Hornbæk Nellemann, Agnete Morell, Alexander Rauff, Ann Bech-Hansen, Carsten Buus Nørgaard, Charlotte Christensen, Ditte Damgaard Jensen, Jens Thim Møller Nielsen, Julie Brøndum Andersen, Karoline Lunddal Dam, Kathrine Sørig Hviid Jensen, Line Kristiansen, Line Kristoffersen, Louise Natalia Nielsen, Margrethe Myklebust, Mathilde Hoffmann Jørgensen, Michael Chanachai Givskov, Natascha Nylander Ebbesen, Thor Dahlstrøm, Tina Haldrup and Tine Kjærgaard.

Tradium is a business and technical college that emphasizes practical and theoretical learning. All of the students who are visitng from Tradium are studying business. During their stay they are sitting in on English and history classes at the College. They are also participating in a stock market simulation and other hands-on learning opportunities.

On their first day, the Food Club hosted a cookout for the students, who are staying with host families. College President Dr. Joseph Brosnan hosted a lunch with the group Sept. 17.

The students will also visit historical and cultural attractions. The schedule for the visit includes trips to: the Martin Guitar Factory, a Phillies game, historic Philadelphia, Mercer Museum, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Valley Forge.
