Alumni Association Offering Spring Getaway to…Cuba?
The Penn State Alumni Association regularly offers trips to various locations across the globe, and this coming March the organization is planning a trip to none other than the most highly coveted vacation spot: Cuba.
You heard me right. Cuba. Yes, THAT Cuba.
For those alumni who are able to take a week off of succeeding in the workforce, it’s a great opportunity to venture into a country that has banned American travel into its borders. With a license specially issued by the U.S. Department of Treasury, Penn State Alumni are granted the opportunity of a lifetime to travel to three cities in Cuba.
Professor Dr. John Nichols from the College of Communications is hosting the trip as a means of promoting cultural exchange and people-to-people interaction.
The cost of $4,095.00 includes jet service to and from Cuba, a week’s worth of stay at two hotels, an all-inclusive meal program, and all excursions. The fee does not include the travel costs to Miami, from which the tour to Cuba will begin.
The trip is open to alumni (sorry, students) and begins March 4. Travelers will return to Miami on the 11th. Cuba and Miami sound like a solid spring break, if you ask me.
