Two New Trips Added to Pioneer Travel

Travel with us! We’re pleased to announce that registration is now open for new trips to Iceland and Israel and West Bank in 2020. In addition, space is still available on our Cuba 2020 trip, and limited spots are open on our Greece 2019 trip. Having recently returned from our Cuba 2019 trip, Laura Mundt BA ’91 reflects: “This was truly a trip of a lifetime. I was so impressed by the experiences we had—music, artists, and lectures—many of which we would not have had access to had we traveled to Cuba on our own. I also loved the mutual L&C connection among travelers and the involvement of a faculty member.” Learn more about Pioneer Travel.

As a result, Huggins has just been awarded the Vanier Scholarship (aka “Canada’s Rhodes Scholarship”) to continue her PhD in biogeochemistry at the University of British Columbia.
