Nicaragua Study Abroad Trip Celebrates 25 Years

Today, the College offers a robust selection of study abroad opportunities, with trips to Central America, South America, Europe, and Asia. But the one that started it all goes back a quarter century, when a group of nursing students went to rural Nicaragua, learning about the culture while providing much needed health services. 

The Nicaragua trip, again led by Professor Paula Moore and Adjunct Instructor Paul Treadwell this year, has become one of the highlights of the year for both the College and the communities we visit. The study abroad experience is worth six-credits, starting with anthropology and health classes in the fall to prepare for the two-week adventure in January. Although a popular fixture of the Nursing program, the trip is open to any student with a passion for health, education, and cultural exchange. 

The Nicaragua trip is the longest running trip the College offers, but far from the only one. With trips to Ireland, Italy, Cambodia, and Colombia, plus dozens more available to our students through our partnership with SUNY Cortland, our students cover the world.
