Simpson to Offer 4 Year Study Abroad Program in Canada Starting Next Year

SIMPSON – School officials announced early this morning that Simpson will be offering a four year study abroad program in Canada starting on January 20, 2017.

Jay Wilkinson, Director of International Education at Simpson, organized the entirety of the program in a little under two days having begun on May 4 in the wee hours of the morning. Wilkinson expects the program to be highly sought out by Simpson’s sane student population, especially after November 8, 2016.

“This program will be a great way for students to learn how Canada seems to do everything right,” explained Wilkinson as he packed his luggage to travel with the advance team to Canada. “Health care, the economy, social and civil rights, and especially governing. Like how they got Justin Trudeau and we got… well… that.”

Along with learning how Canada seemingly does everything right, students who take part in the program will also learn how easy it is to get Canadian citizenship, how to buy a home in Canada, and how to speak at least a little French to deal with hoighty-toighty Quebecois.

John Epperson, Professor of Political Science at Simpson, will be the faculty leader of Simpson’s pioneering four year study abroad program. The program will be based at Carleton College in Ottawa, Ontario, a mid-sized private liberal arts college.

“Canada is just like the United States… except they haven’t f***ed everything up,” said Epperson as he put the finishing touches on his application for Canadian citizenship. “They don’t have the best bourbon up there but we all have to make sacrifices.”

Cost to students for the program will be minimized due to their status with the Canadian government as “political asylum seekers.” Currently, with no wall along the Canadian border hindering travel, students can use any ground-based method of transportation to get the “heck outta Dodge.”

“There’s no limit to the number of students, staff and faculty who can take part in the program,” said Wilkinson as he threw his luggage into the back of his car. “Indeed, depending on how things wrap up in 2021, we may extend the program another four years or indefinitely!”
