MC students and faculty in Greece

May Term 2019

MC’s new May Term offered students opportunities for up-close, hands-on experience and reflection. Several courses emphasized travel – both in the U.S. and abroad. Groups traveled to Bonaire to explore tropical ecology; Greece to study ancient and modern Greek history and culture; New York City to explore the history of immigration in the city; Peru to learn about Peruvian history, culture and traditions; and California to study diversity in the U.S. The MC volleyball team also traveled and competed in Europe.
