Since March 2013, when the students last posted on this blog, we took two more groups to the United Arab Emirates. Currently to date 62 students, in 3 groups, have been able to experience the magnificence of the UAE. We have offered the course Iconic Dubai, nearly every semester since the first trip in 2013. From unparalleled hospitality to the captivating architecture, the miles of malls and endless buffets, the 12 day itinerary highlights the entire spectrum of what the United Arab Emirates has to offer. The itinerary for all three groups remained nearly identical, but the ambitions, interests, and passions of each student made each trip powerfully unique. Sadly , to publish in the blog was not made part of the last few courses, but it has now returned.
More importantly, in four weeks students start classes for Spring Semester and another group of 21 students and staff will be headed to Dubai in March 2015. Airfare, hotels, tours and restaurants are all booked! The course and lectures are about to begin and the anticipation is building. Join us in 90 days when we go again. -Matthew Dunham
