Part of inspiring well-rounded students is to experience the arts and sciences in a hands-on, real-world fashion. The College of Arts and Sciences Travel Fund helps keep student costs within reason to allow for participation from a variety of students.

Your support will allow the college to bring students on these "value-added" experiences ― education beyond the traditional classroom. In interviewing graduating seniors across many years, they routinely mention such co-curricular experiences as among the most enjoyable and fruitful of their student experience.

Students are eager to participate. Your support for this fund will open opportunities, doors and minds.

Trip to Panama

The College of Arts and Sciences Travel Fund enabled students from Biology and Earth Sciences to participate in a trip to Panama. Students hiked in the rainforest on both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts of Panama, snorkeled in the Pacific near Panama City and in the Caribbean at Bocas del Toro, toured a sustainable permaculture farm on the island of Bastimentos, and visited historic ruins of Panama.

Trip to Belgium and The Netherlands

The College of Arts and Sciences Travel Fund enabled students to participate in an interdisciplinary trip, which included participants from Earth Sciences, Political Science, and Civil and Environmental Engineering. Students participating in the Belgium/Netherlands trip experienced culture, history, art, architecture, and advanced public works systems (Delta Works) at locations including Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Delta Works in the Netherlands, Antwerp and Ghent.
