New Mexico trip informational meeting set for Tuesday


Faculty sponsoring a spring trip to New Mexico will host an informational meeting scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 11, in Room 120 of Davis Hall.

Dr. Brenda Brown, professor of English, is sponsoring the trip, scheduled to run from April 25 through May 3 in conjunction with the university’s independent study period.

Brown, who has led many trips abroad for the university, believes that the New Mexico trip represents a great value to students and community members who choose to attend.

“When I see students embrace different cultures with excitement and awe, I literally watch them grow intellectually and emotionally,” Brown said. “It is awesome.”

While students may enroll in a course in order to receive credit for the trip, it is open to the public and everyone is invited to attend the meeting.

The itinerary includes visits to Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Taos as well as an opportunity for civic engagement.

Travelers can expect to visit historical sites such as the Acoma Pueblo, the Bandelier National Monument and the Tsankawi Ruins as well as spending time in museums in Santa Fe and Taos.

The program, which includes transportation, housing accommodations and entry fees to all facilities, costs $1,200.

The first half of the program’s cost will be due by January 18 with the remainder due by March 27.

More information about the trip and the informational meeting can be obtained by calling 574-1207 or by visiting
