OK, OK, OK. I know that I said I would keep everyone updated on events and the Wyatt Program that has taken place this last academic year and I haven’t. I apologize for that, but it has been a busy academic year! I once again will be narrating our Wyatt Student Expedition to Germany this year and I hope to do even more posting while we are there. Last year in London it was a bit of a learning curve and I have learned a lot about blogging and about traveling abroad with a group of students! First let me give you a run down of the awesome events we had this year (that i forgot to let you guys know about 🙁 sorry again!).
Of course we had to start off with an awesome Wyatt Kick-Off like we do every year. I’m pretty sure I did tell you guys about that one! We had three guest speakers during the Fall 2016 semester: Dr. Derek Hastings, Associate Professor in History at Oakland University; Dr. Karrin Hanshew, Associate Professor in History at Michigan State University; and Dr. Joel Harrington, Professor of History, Vanderbilt University. We also held an Oktoberfest event that featured a thirty-piece German brass band, a movie night showing Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, and a Krampus event. All of the events featured yummy German food.
As of right now we are exactly one week away from leaving for Germany. The trip will be taking place from May 8th-21st. There are 7 students that will be attending the trip. For this trip we will be staying in four different cities; Nuremberg, Regensburg, Salzburg, and Munich. The itinerary is almost completely set and there are only a few last minute details that need to be straightened out. It should be a very rewarding and exciting trip!
That’s all for now, but make sure you keep checking for updates! We will be heading out before you know it!
