Spring 2009 Study Away: New Orleans

This spring, CCV is organizing its first "study away" trip. Unlike previous study abroad courses, this offering will present a unique opportunity to provide community service work in our own country. Social Problems (SOC-1030-VU02) will bring students to the New Orleans area, where they will not only experience the culture and beauty of the city, but also learn about social problems there and provide 30 hours of hands-on community service.

The course will be taught by Burlington academic advisor Mica DeAngelis and long-time teacher Barry Mansfield. They have been to the Gulf area four times since Hurricane Katrina, working with Habitat for Humanity to help rebuild homes. (For more information on their trips, click here.) 

The class will also meet four Saturdays in Burlington from 1 - 5 pm on Feb. 21, Apr. 11, Apr. 25 and May 30, with the trip to New Orleans taking place May 9 - 16.The course fee of $988 includes group flight to and from Burlington, most breakfasts and lunches, lodging, transportation, and a guided tour of New Orleans.
