McDaniel College Budapest 

Hike in the Hills
McDaniel students took memorable trip to the Börzsöny.

McDaniel students joined McDaniel professors on a hiking trip in the Börzsöny region of Hungary, north of Budapest. In particular came students from the Sophomore Interdisciplinary Study course, "Budapest and Beyond," a class aimed at forming an experiential, multi-faceted perspective on Hungarian life and society. The trip to the Börzsöny represented a great opportunity to see the countryside "beyond Budapest" and to take in one of Hungary' s most beautiful national parks.
