New School in Argentina to Have Oklahoma Accent


May, Bill, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Argentina's first Methodist-affiliated university will have a decided Oklahoma accent.

That's because the Centro Educativo Latino Americano school in Rosario, Argentina, is working with faculty and staff of Oklahoma City University to design its first curriculum for when school opens in March.

"Everything is ready for that first class, which hopefully will be offered when the new session begins if we can get all the government permits and approvals," said Pedro Di Pentima, director general or president of the school.

"This means that we would have a good system from which to draw students," he said. "We have about 3,000 students in that school now, so they would form the core of what we hope to attract to the college.

"Plans are to open the school with 1,000 students, who would come from all over Rosario state. …
