VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Some VSU honors students found a unique way to encourage their fellow students to study abroad.

Friday, some honors students demonstrated the ancient Irish game of hurling to get students' attention and teach them about Irish culture. The students studied abroad in Ireland this past May and and said experiencing a different culture is important for young people today.

"Most any career you go into, you're gonna have to deal with people from other countries," said Kyle Dawson, one of the honors students who went to Ireland. "And, you might even have to go to another country. So, it's good while you're still kind of young to go over there and interact with the people and learn some different ways."

VSU offers both semester and year-long study abroad programs in over 20 countries.
