Travel Opportunities for Students

I was very pleased to receive a request from my sponsor today, asking me to write about educational travel opportunities. As I was relating in my post yesterday, I was fortunate enough to have opportunities to travel when I was a student, and I think it was life-changing for me. As a student, I visited Mexico, Dominica, Antigua, Singapore, Malaysia, and England, all on trips organized by groups that were interested in using the travel opportunities to nurture students as they grow and learn.

Collegiate Explorations Tours (CE Tours) is interested in offering precisely this sort of service for students. CE Tours believes that learning doesn't come strictly from textbooks, nor does it happen mostly in classrooms. Rather, students often learn best when they have the chance to see and to do. I agree with this thinking, and I love the programs that CE Tours offers. With CE Tours, students get to engage their senses and their minds all at the same time, soaking up first-hand those things which we hope they will learn.

Today, I teach, and I have been fortunate enough to be involved with this sort of educational tours "on the other side" now too. I have found that there is so much to be gained by taking students to a place away from home, different from what they have known all of their lives. I think it is great that CE Tours is offering this opportunity for more students to engage in.
