Visit Spain in 2020

 

Visit Spain June 29 – July 8, 2020

Imagine yourself exploring Barcelona, Madrid, and Andalucia. Join Wilson Community College on this exciting travel abroad trip to Spain.

 

Why Travel?

In an increasingly globalized world, it’s crucial that students experience and understand the world’s many diverse cultures. Through educational travel, students can contextualize academic subjects and get a firsthand perspective on international issues, building essential problem-solving skills while adapting to a new environment. This results in life-changing experiences for students. Educational travel takes lessons out of the classroom and into the world while enriching students to help them become informed global citizens

Faculty Travel Abroad Program Coordinator and Group Leader, Mr. Luis Benavent,at La Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona, Spain
The Faculty Travel Abroad Program Coordinator and Group Leader, Mr. Luis Benavent, visited La Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona, Spain while on vacation with his family. Designed by famous Spanish architect Antonio Gaudí, its construction began in 1882 but was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War. It is anticipated that the building will be completed by 2026 – the centenary of Gaudí’s death. Join Wilson Community College next year on our trip to Spain to visit this amazing site and learn more about the culture and history of Spain.

Students who travel abroad:

  • Attain higher degrees
  • Graduate with higher college GPAs
  • Have higher salaries
  • Travel more often
  • Are more attractive job candidates
  • Are 4x more likely to travel on overseas business

Every tour includes:

  • Roundtrip transportation
  • Ground transportation
  • Hotel accommodations
  • Select meals & activities
  • Day excursions
  • Full-time Tour Director

 

“After my European trip with Explorica I feel like a changed person. The biggest thing I have learned from this trip is that the world really doesn’t just revolve around the United States. There is so much more to see out there. Each country was different in its own way, whether it was a language barrier, cultural difference or scenery change. It was definitely the best investment of my life and helped me make memories that will last a lifetime.” – James, Community College Student

The term ‘nontraditional careers’ refers to jobs that have been traditionally filled by one specific gender. The U.S. Department of Labor defines Nontraditional Occupations as “occupations for which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25% of the individuals employed in that occupation”.

Explore a nontraditional career path at Wilson Community College and envision yourself in a career you never dreamed of!
