    American Experience Tour

Through the American Experience Tour, students have the opportunity to learn outside the classroom by exploring history where it happened through a summer travel program. These trips bring students face to face with our nation’s key historical sites, enabling students to experience the events for themselves. Recent trips have included visits to the Cane Ridge Meeting House, the U.S. Capitol, Ellis Island, the Boston Freedom Trail, Gettysburg, Independence Hall, Mount Vernon, and the USS Constitution.

The trip takes place during the summer of even years. The next trip is May 12-26, 2020. Come sign up in the History and Political Science Department office.
