Spring Break Trips

Professors take small groups of students on annual spring break trips which, in the past, have included destinations such as Turkey, Spain, Singapore, Germany, Greece, Rome, Venice, and Trinidad and Tobago.

During the March 2011 spring break, some Penn State Beaver students traveled abroad to study art, history, and technology.

Dr. Robin Bower, associate professor of Spanish, along with students from her Iberian Civilization and Culture class, traveled to Madrid, Spain, where they visited the Prado Museum, which is the home of major collections of the work of Spanish master artists El Greco, Diego de Velazquez, and Francisco Goya.

Bower’s group also visited the Reina Sofia Museum, which houses art by Salvadore Dali and Pablo Picasso, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, which features one of the world’s most extensive private art collections.

Dr. Kay Wijekumar, associate professor of information sciences and technology, took students from her Senior Synthesis class to Italy.

The class presented its iPhone and Droid Application Development and Prototype at the International Conference on Computer Applications in Venice. The group also went to Rome for a tour of the Vatican and its information systems and visited the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
