UNC's New "Summer Abroad" Program

Gosh, when I was an undergrad, I always wanted to study abroad. But I could never find a broad who would let me. (baDOOMching)

Anyway, the University of North Carolina sends its undergrads to the far corners of the globe, in search of the exotic and the strange.

But they have just started a new summer study abroad program, one that might make the heart of even the boldest adventurer quail in fear.

UNC is sending its "study abroad" students to.....Oklahoma.

Going overseas is for wimps. Once the Peyote kicks in, these kids will be visiting far off galaxies.

“There is nothing like this offered at this campus or any other,” said Tol Foster, assistant professor of American studies at UNC and a citizen of the Muskogee Creek Nation.

The more I think about this quote, the more my head hurts.
