CUTHBERT, Ga.– Andrew College is pleased to announce that Noah Varsalona has received the 2021 Global Korea Scholarship for Foreign Exchange Students.  The scholarship is to attend Pai Chai University in Daejeon, South Korea.  Varsalona is a current student at Andrew College and is majoring in Visual Art.  When asked why he would want to study in Korea, Varsalona stated, “by studying abroad in Korea, I will be exposed to new artistic techniques and styles that I would otherwise have no idea even existed. This will give me the opportunity to learn from the students as well as the teachers in Korea and bring what I learn to Andrew College. The artistic styles and culture of South East Asia go hand in hand with my artistic body of work.”  In addition to the scholastic prerequisites, Varsalona will be required to take a Korean language or culture class during the exchange program.  Varsalona is an active member of the Andrew College student body participating in AndrewServes, Phi Theta Kappa, he is a tutor for the Student Success Center and serves as the art editor for the college’s literary journal the Spire Light Magazine.  After completing his studies abroad and at Andrew College, Varsalona plans to transfer to Vanderbilt University for a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Art with a minor in Cinema and Media Arts. Noah hopes to use his art for good.  “Through my art, I hope to influence people and make the world a better place.”
