Students/Faculty Explore London & Japan - More to Come!

Four UACCM Instructors recently led groups of students and community members to explore London and Japan on two EF Educational Tours. Instructors Gretchen Schol and Tina Lake led the group to London during spring break 2010, where travelers experienced Windsor Castle, Big Ben, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and the British Museum with stops at the ancient site of Stonehenge, the Roman ruins at Bath, the famed Canterbury Cathedral and much more.

A group of students, faculty members, alumni and community members also discovered the mystery of Japan on an EF Educational Tour during the May 2010 intersession. Lyndsey Daniel and Karen Caig joined travelers during two sightseeing tours in Tokyo and Kyoto, visits to the Meiji Shinto Shrine, Asakusa Kannon Temple, Nijo Castle, Heian Shrine and Garden, Gold Pavilion, Osaka Castle, a Sumida River cruise and more. Students were also able to take a three credit-hour humanities course on Japan in addition to the trip. With UACCM’s new Global Studies course, more students will be eligible to explore foreign countries for college credit. According to Daniel, “Knowledge of the Japanese culture is becoming increasingly important in global business.” UACCM recently created a Japanese Club (Otaku Club) to accommodate the growing interest in Japan.

The London and Japan trips were the most recent in a line of educational tours sponsored by UACCM instructors. Upcoming tours include locations in Peru and Italy. For more information on the Peru trip, e-mail daniel@uaccm.edu and for information on the Italy trip, e-mail lake@uaccm.edu.
