KENNESAW, Ga. -- Six athletes and one coach from Kennesaw State University's women's soccer team are making plans to travel to Ecuador to conduct a soccer camp for 150 children.

The invitation to begin the camp was an outgrowth of KSU's Student Teaching International Study Abroad program held in conjunction with Colegio Menor and Universidad de San Francisco in Quito, Ecuador.

"This soccer camp is an excellent example of Kennesaw State's international outreach and engagement," said KSU president Daniel S. Papp. "Our international programs are central to KSU's academic mission, and we encourage our students to take part and get involved in these exciting projects."

This will be the first time any KSU student-athletes have ventured outside of the country to conduct a summer camp.
