Students from Auburn University Honors College are the university’s first formal study abroad group to visit Cuba since trade-relations opened nearly 50 years ago. Eleven students, along with a professor from the College of Liberal Arts, Tiffany Sippial, visited the country from May 9-21 as part of an Honors College Study and Travel course.

“Honors College Study and Travel courses are more than just a week abroad, they are holistic experiences where students immerse themselves in the history and culture of the area prior to traveling,” said Melissa Baumann, assistant provost for Undergraduate Studies and director of the Honors College. “We are thrilled these students had the opportunity to travel to a location that has been cut off from the American traveler’s wish list for so many years.”
