Applications are processed on a rolling basis, with a deadline of February 1–now pushed back by the Office of International Education to February 10. Those considering applying should know that in the nine times I have run this study tour, we have never taken more than 19 students on any one trip. While Greece accommodates many more travelers each year, our seminars there do not.
Those coming to this after the deadline might want to contact Michael Taber in case there’s an opening due to a cancellation.
Those who would like to communicate with alumni of the study tour, in order to get students’ perspective can contact me for a list of names and e-mail addresses. I stay in regular touch with study tour alumni, sending out links to the occasional news articles, updates about some of the Greek friends we make, or just to playfully embarrass each other with a photo one of us has come across.
Although most of the students have been from St. Mary’s College of Maryland, we and our students have enjoyed getting to know fellow students from such places as Cal State–Fulllerton, University of Alaska at Anchorage, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Point Park University, Elizabethtown College, Western Connecticut State University, University of Maryland—College Park, and the University of Idaho. Friendships have developed lasting many years.
