University Offers ‘5 Star’ Trip to India
Walking through palaces, floating down the River Ganges and even riding in a camel-cart procession are just a few of the many experiences available through West Texas A&M University’s short course “Incredible India—A Learning Adventure.”
WTAMU’s Office of Continuing Education (OCE) is again offering the community an exciting opportunity to study and travel. The noncredit classroom portion of the program will meet once a month in September, October, November and December for discussion sessions before traveling to India Jan. 9-24, 2010.
“I’ve had the opportunity to travel to India on six occasions in the past several years, and I’m excited about sharing this incredible experience with a group of interested and enthusiastic travelers,” Dr. Eddie Henderson, dean of the WTAMU College of Education and Social Sciences, said.
Henderson will serve as host and guide on the trip. His discussion sessions prior to the India trip will give travelers insight on Indian religions, history, art, architecture and social issues before touring the country’s cities, palaces and temples.
“The 2010 adventure might best be described as a ‘5-Star’ experience,” Henderson said. “We will be utilizing the top hotels in India including the Hotel Imperial in New Delhi and the Taj and Oberoi Hotels. The adventure will include a number of experiences not usually included in the typical tourist itinerary—experiences designed to enhance the participants’ understanding and enjoyment of India.”
The cost per person for the “Incredible India” short course is $5,500. The cost includes the OCE registration fee, lodging (double occupancy) in five-star hotels, daily breakfast, ground transportation, guides, admission to all travel sights, domestic airfare and domestic train fare.
A nonrefundable deposit of $1,000 per person is required on or before Sept. 15, and the remaining balance is due on or before Nov. 1. For more information or to reserve a space, contact Henderson at 806-651-2603 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit the website at wtamu.edu/india.
