Quo Custom Library – Europe!
For Americans, Europe is a fantastic place to develop a sense of global awareness.
There’s little harm in acknowledging that Europe is widely regarded as the seat of Western Civilization and Culture. Much of American society’s foundation is built on European precedents.
American history transforms into something much richer and more poignant when students’ perspective is informed by a personal connection to the history of Europe. Even if it’s true that Asia, Africa and South America will play a more defining role in today’s students’ future, Europe tells us where we have been.
A Quo adventure in Europe is rooted in gaining a big-picture understanding of the past in a way that could never happen in textbooks alone.
By no means is Europe more historic than other continents, but its history is incredibly well-preserved, surprisingly accessible and, with Quo’s phenomenal Leaders and expert guides, so well presented.
Let’s join forces and create a program that immerses students in the unparalleled, living museum of history that is a Custom Quo European Adventure.
