International students can visit New Orleans this May with a new program offered by the Office of International Programs. The Study America program draws on decades of study abroad experience and will organize twice-yearly excursions to cities around the U.S., allowing international students to explore America beyond the Auburn city limits. The inaugural trip to New Orleans will take place May 9-12 and will include a French Quarter tour, a steamboat cruise with live jazz, an air boat tour of the bayou and a chance to see Mardi Gras. Registration is $1,193 per person and includes all transportation, hotel accommodation, all activities, daily breakfast and other select meals. If 40 students register the price drops to $928, and the difference in price will be refunded to students automatically. Students must register and pay a 50 percent deposit by March 10 in order to reserve a spot, and final payment is due by April 5. All interested students are invited to a Mardi Gras party in the Foy Hall Lobby Feb. 28 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Grab a piece of traditional king cake, some Mardi Gras beads and learn more about the Study American program. For more information and to register visit http://www.auburn.edu/academic/international/ap/study-america/.
