Julie Moran of Danville is spending the fall 2004 semester studying abroad in Strasbourg, France, through Syracuse University's Division of International Programs Abroad.

The Strasbourg program, established in 1974, enrolls approximately 100 students each academic year.

In addition, students travel to historic sites in Germany, Switzerland, and other destinations.

Moran is a junior majoring in drama.


Mary Elizabeth T. Barrington, a junior, was recently inducted for membership in Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society for college students. The Omicron Delta Kappa Society, Inc. recognizes and encourages superior scholarship, leadership, and exemplary character. Membership in ODK is a mark of highest distinction and honor for college students of junior or senior standing. The Georgetown College Circle of ODK initiated only 20 new members for the 2004-2005 academic year. Barrington was selected for membership from a group of 165 prospective members.


The society recognizes achievement in scholarship; athletics; campus or community service, social, religious activities, and campus government; journalism, speech and the mass media; and the creative and performing arts. Emphasis is placed on the development of the whole person, both as a member of the college community and as a contribution to a better society.

Barrington is a Georgetown College Presidents Ambassador, member of Harper-Gatton Medallion Program, vice president of Delta Omicron, 2004 Belle of the Blue, and member of Young Democrats. She is the daughter of John and Susan Barrington of Mercer County.


Julie A. McGlothlin, a senior majoring in English and Spanish, became a member of the college's Upsilon Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership honor society. A graduate of Danville High School, she is the daughter of Lyle and Mary Ann McGlothlin of Danville.

Memberships in the society are awarded to undergraduate juniors and seniors who rank in the top 35 percent of their class and demonstrate outstanding leadership ability. McGlothlin was one of the 35 inducted into the Upsilon Circle.
