Most travel bucket lists might be considered incomplete if they neglect to include Peru’s Machu Picchu and the ancient Incan capital of Cusco, but if these places are on your list, here’s your chance! The course ART 367: Inca Art and Architecture, cross-listed as LAS 373 and ANT 379, offers students the occasion to travel to both one of the the oldest continuously inhabited archaeological capitals in South America and the world’s coolest lost city during spring break 2016.
While most students may see Latin as a dead language, one course this spring is bringing it back to life by immersing students in Roman terrain. In an email statement, Yelena Baraz, the professor of LAT 333: Vergil’s Aeneid, said that the course studies the epic poem in Latin by focusing on Italy’s landscape and topography to study how Roman identity was formed.
President Barack Obama announced the restoration of diplomatic relations with Cuba last December, but if you’d like to visit Cuba before the embargo potentially ends, then take ART 466: Havana: Architecture, Literature and the Arts. Led by professor of art and archeology Esther Roseli da Costa Azevedo Meyer and professor emeritus in the english and comparative literature departments Michael Wood, you’d get to travel to Havana during spring break.
Unlike many of the other trip-based classes offered next semester, SPA 327: Latino Global Cities isn’t going abroad, but to another corner of the United States: Puerto Rico. Traveling to San Juan over spring break, the course studies urban Latino cultures in cities throughout the United States, the Caribbean and Spain. Cross-listed as a Spanish, urban studies and Latino studies course, SPA 327 requires a 200-level Spanish course, or instructor permission, and a one-page motivation letter, followed by an interview, to be selected as one of 14 students allowed to take this course. Priority is given to students who are planning on concentrating in Spanish and Portuguese.
To get to one of the most beautiful places on Earth, you have to drive through hell. U.S. Route 395 stretches from the Canadian border to the mouth of Southern California’s Interstate-15 in the Mojave Desert. As a Californian by birth, I tend to identify all interstates as “freeways,” but it’s roads like Route 395 that I specifically label as highways — the two-lane road that stretches endlessly through a desert horizon. The nature of this endless horizon means two things — there will be extraordinary beauty along the way, but this beauty is perhaps more appreciated with your growing familiarity with the great spaces of emptiness, landscapes without water, places with the haunting reminder of nature’s cruel power.

When Naomi Lake ’17 decided to pursue a part-time position at Olsson’s Fine Foods and Cheese, part of her reasoning involved a desire to experience a little bit of life outside the Orange Bubble.
As soon as I told our airport taxi driver the name of the street I would be living on for the next four weeks — “Rua Sá Ferreira,” I said, the unfamiliar whooshy h-like rr’s of Portuguese tumbling gracelessly out of my mouth — he nodded. “Ah, I know where that is,” he said. “In Copacabana.”

For 23 hours between Oct. 22 and 23, many students crowded curiously around the outside of Frist Campus Center, watching a University student sit motionless and alone inside of a 7x9 foot box. Word spread quickly, and many students soon knew about the performance, also known as “7x9”; the box represents the size of cell that prisoners in solitary confinement live in. What some students may not have known was that “7x9” was planned by a student organization called Students for Prison Education and Reform.

When they were in the military, Max Kim ’16, Michael Liao ’17 and Ann Thompson GS began each day hours before the typical college student gets out of bed.
