Another Green Weekend has past, and the students have traveled to many new places. Not only do these weekends give the students the chance to travel, but they offer rich cultural experiences that surrounds them as they reach their destinations, and as they spend time there. These travel opportunities open the world to the students.

There is nothing quite like the view underneath the canopy of Les Halles in Paris, France. This student took this great photograph while admiring the sunken stairs that lead into the the, mostly, underground shopping center. (Photograph by Naomi Mareschal)
