“Our trip to India without mincing words was a rich experience, informative and educational. The state of the art monument, parks, museums, temples, both Christian and Hindu is an amazing testimony of beautiful nation. However, among all the exciting places we visited I was mostly humbled to step my feet in the resting place of one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ. The Tomb of St. Thomas in Santhome cathedral Basilica in Chennai. It was a consummation of my faith as a Catholic. The tomb of St. Thomas the apostle indeed represented the quietness and peacefulness reminiscent of a Saint. It is my singular honor and privilege to be involved in this travel course that had made all these possible and accessible in my lifetime. May God take the glory – Amen.” INDIA
“Teaching this course provides an opportunity for students to experience a global, cultural and natural environment. By far the majority of my research has focused on tropical island populations subjected to human mediated changes in their habitats.”
“…to have an in depth look at marine life and for the archeological dig” –BAHAMAS
“Getting thrown into two of the most famous buildings in the world on the first day was a wonderful start. It really set the pace for the rest of the trip. I think my own fascination with the level of detail in these buildings really set the tone for the rest of the trip for me. It let me know that I had better pay attention at all times or I was sure to miss way too much. Even while trying to be diligent I realized many oversights every time I revisited the same place twice throughout the trip.” —WASHINGTON D.C.
