Mount Students Experience Multicultural Journey
Aug. 26, 2005 -- Mount instructor Philip Otis of the Language and Culture Department led a group of Weekend College and traditional students to Spain and Portugal on a multicultural trip this summer. The group toured areas of historical significance in Jewish, Muslim, and Roman Catholic traditions.
None of the students had traveled out of the United States before the July excursion. The group spent 10 days traveling through the Iberian Peninsula.
Otis teaches Latin American studies, and Latin American history, politics, and economic development at the College.
