SARANAC LAKE - A group of students from North Country Community College recently returned from 10 days in Ireland with EF Tours. The International Travel Class has been providing students, faculty, staff and the public opportunities for international travel for the past six years. Students can earn sociology or humanities credits towards their degrees.
To date, the International Travel class has traveled to: Italy, France, Spain/Morocco, Great Britain/Ireland/Wales, Costa Rica and most recently, back to Ireland. Traveling in May, with instructors Cammy Sheridan from Saranac Lake and Tina LaMour from Malone and chaperone Lee Susice, were 17 students and members of the community. The group traveled to Shannon, Limerick, Blarney, Cork, Cobh, Killarney and Dublin. LaMour said "this is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience diverse cultures, art and history that they may not have the opportunity to do otherwise and we could not have asked for a better group to travel with!"
If anyone is interested in joining the International Travel class they can contact the Registrar's Office at 518-891-2915 ext. 247.
