South Central College will host a student trip to South Africa May 20-June 7, 2013 (dates may vary slightly). Cost will be in the neighborhood of $3200-3400.
People who are not students at SCC are welcome to go on this trip, too, but students will be involved in a related course during spring semester.
This trip will be a journey in understanding humanity, exploring the history of human rights, and being immersed in South African culture by spending fourteen days on the ground in country. We will see the country, strive for an understanding the historic culture, and connect with people. The trip will include experiencing Cape Town, District Six (political basis for the feature film “District Nine”), Port Elizabeth, the Red Location Museum (Apartheid Museum), Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years), Eden Campus Tertiary School of Business Administration, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, Sedgefield “Garden Roots,” an African safari, Elephant park and Ostrirch park, and personal connections with South African students.
Scott Fee, MSU professor of Construction Management, will be our group leader. He has taken groups to South Africa several times and was instrumental in the founding of Eden Campus TSBA.
