What is the study trip committee?
Everyone could use a nice break, especially the busy Liberal Arts students. This committee works hard to organise our annual Study Trip, open to all Extra Muros members. Those who join this committee will spend their time thinking of fun and affordable destinations to visit, coming up with academic and non-formal activities, booking accommodations, and creating budgets. The Study Trip Committee is one of the most rewarding committees in Extra Muros, creating an unforgettable experience, but also one with a responsible and diverse work!
Do you love traveling and want a new experience and some extra spice to your student life?
The Trip Committee is one of many possible ways of getting involved in your study organization Extra Muros. This committee is dedicated to arranging interesting, fun and motivating trips. All in line with your studies. The trip is an extension to what you study in your Liberal Arts and Sciences program; visiting historically important places is mixed with meeting the culture of the current location. Taking part in the trip not only gives you greater experience of the various cultures in Europe and beyond, but it also gives you the opportunity to make great friends amongst your fellow students. This year we hope to engage you in the upcoming trip that will take place during either the winter break or the spring semester of 2020.
In 2019, the destination was chosen by the votes of students and we went to Athens, exploring the culture that was the foundation of our democracy. We researched how the City of Athens functioned during the classical period of Ancient Greece and how it contributed to the formation of Western civilization. We visited the Acropolis, the Parthenon and many musea considering how Athens culturally and politically shaped our society. It was an incredible experience that will be repeated again this year at an equally incredible location.
