Geography faculty members Dale Lightfoot and Tom Wikle will lead a spring break course in Cuba on March 11-18, 2017.  The Environment and Heritage of Cuba course is designed to fit many interests in a broad range of resource, environment, culture and heritage topics.  We are working with a company that focuses exclusively on educational exchanges to Cuba to create an up-close and personal experience with the country.  This is an ideal time to visit Cuba as things are changing quickly.   Growing interest in Cuba has advanced the deadline for securing a place in this course, in order to guarantee the same great hotel locations we have enjoyed on past trips.  The cost of the trip is $3,489 shich includes tuition and fees, round-trip airfare to/from Miami, ground transportation, overnight lodging, breakfast (daily), some dinners, guides, and entrance fees.  The credit price includes 3 hours of OSU graduate or undergraduate tuition.

If you would like more information about this opportunity, please contact Dale LIghtfoot ( or Tom Wikle (  If you are committed to joining the course (for credit or non-credit) we need to hear from you soon and you must pay your first deposit October 15.
