12 Danie Moss '99 is barely out of college, but is convinced she has already experienced the most influential time of her young life. As a junior, Moss spent six months in Madrid with a program coordinated by Syracuse University's Division of International Programs Abroad (DIPA). "It was the best thing I could have done for myself," says Moss, a class marshal who majored in child development and international relations. "By the end of the semester, I didn't want to come back."
      Every year, more than 1,300 students study abroad through DIPA. The University has offered international tour and study opportunities since 1919, but the true foundation began with a Mexican art study
program in 1949 and the creation of DIPA's Florence program in 1959. University College developed the University's study-abroad programs from 1948 to 1969, when the Division of International Programs Abroad was officially established. By the mid-seventies, there were DIPA centers in London, Madrid, and Strasbourg. Recent years have seen the addition of programs in Hong Kong and Harare, Zimbabwe. Each location offers a variety of study options, including semester, yearlong, and summer programs. "With most of the programs, it is really easy to do a semester," says Sue Shane '76, G'81, assistant to the executive director. "Faculty members work with students to try to arrange their schedules so it can happen."
