SRU ROTC cadets qualify for Army’s CULP program


A quartet of Slippery Rock University ROTC cadets have been selected to participate in the U.S. Army's 30-day Cultural Language and Proficiency program next summer. The program allows American students to teach English and American culture while studying the language and culture of their assigned country.

CULP slots are awarded based on grade-point average, physical fitness and language ability.

Cadets and the countries they'll be studying in include: Tiffany Tanner, a physical and health education major from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Lithuania; Emily Dooley, a homeland security major from Walden, New York, Honduras; Carson Lianga, a safety management major from Pittsburgh, Sri Lanka; and Katie Shaw, public health major from Fayetteville, North Carolina, Bulgaria.
