Current Opportunities, 2015-2016 Academic Year

 

Georgia Highlands College will have several trips for students during the 2015-2016 Academic Year. The college will have three trips to the University of Georgia's Monteverde, Costa Rica campus. These trips will include a spring break (March 27-April 3, 2016) trip, a Health Sciences trip (June 19-June 29, 2016) and a month-long (June 2015) consortium trip. In addition to the trips to Costa Rica, the college will also send a group of honor's students to Kennesaw State University's campus in Montepulciano, Italy during the summer of 2016.
