RALEIGH, N.C. (February 25, 2014) - Wake Tech is again offering an educational tour of the island nation of Cuba. The college has teamed up with Explorica, a Boston-based company, to offer students an eight-day international learning experience. The trip will begin on July 25, 2014, and will include an exploration of Old Havana; visits with local musicians; the delights of Cuban cuisine; and excursions to an art institute, an urban garden, and a cavern. Wake Tech students, faculty, and staff – as well as their friends, families, and the community – are welcome to participate. 

“International exchanges are a wonderful way to experience other cultures and prepare students for success in a global economy,” says Wake Tech instructor and tour organizer Jeff Myers. “This is a rare opportunity to visit communist Cuba and learn about its history, its government, its economy and the arts.”  

U.S. citizens are not allowed to travel to Cuba except for approved educational purposes. Last year Wake Tech became one of the first community colleges in the nation to lead an educational trip to Cuba. 

Wake Tech has a number of educational excursions planned. The college will take a group of students to Qatar in March. Registration for that trip is closed; however, space is still available for an October trip to Puerto Rico and a December trip to Costa Rica. For more information on costs and how to register, visit http://www.waketech.edu/programs-courses/credit/travel-abroad or contact Jeff Myers at 919-795-9264 (jrmyers@waketech.edu).
