Check out this story on KPLU's website about a group of TESC students who are building bridges to Iraq:
OLYMPIA, WA (2008-05-23) It's been called the cradle of civilization and the birthplace of algebra, modern medicine and astronomy.
Yet modern-day Iraq can no longer educate most of its young people. A group in the U.S. called the Iraqi Student Project is trying to help - by securing tuition waivers at colleges and universities here.
And it looks like The Evergreen State College in Olympia will be one of the first state schools in the nation to take part.
A group of students there has been working hard to make it possible for a counterpart from Baghdad to start attending Evergreen this fall.
