JERSEY CITY, N.J. | Earlier this year, 16 of NJCU’s Honors students — accompanied by Professors John Bragg and Peri Yuksel — traveled to Istanbul, Turkey as part of Professor Bragg’s Fall 2021 class “City as Text: Istanbul”.

During the nine-day trip, the group visited a number of iconic historical sites related to the course, including Ayasofia, the Topkapi Palace, and the Blue Mosque. The group also visited NJCU’s partner school in Turkey — Istanbul Galata University — where they were welcomed with a reception and a presentation on cultural and historical diversity in Turkey.
