It’s not too late to sign up for the choir trip to Austria and the Czech Republic! Students are not required to sing but can travel as a participant on this amazing tour with professor Elise Hepworth. They will spend time in Salzburg, make a visit to Neuschwanstein Castle, relax in a Vienna café and visit Schoenbrunn Palace, and see the most exciting locations in Prague. No matter what your student’s major, they can participate in this once-in-a-lifetime trip!


Sign-ups are open for BIO 220, Field Natural History of Arizona. We have openings for 18 students on this trip which will take place over spring break. Dr. Karen Koy will lead students on an adventure to visit the Grand Canyon, Red Rock State Park, Meteor Crater, and even an ostrich farm! Students need one prior Biology course or permission of the instructor to attend, and they’ll earn 3 credit hours.


Sign-ups will be open soon for the American College Theatre Festival in January. Students will travel to Sioux Falls and spend a week learning about all aspects of theatre, from writing to acting to costuming and directing. Professor Manon Halliburton and Department Chair Jeff Stover will accompany students to the best festival in the Midwest. This is open to students across campus who have an interest in the theatre, and they’ll earn one credit hour.
