Students on this travel interim will have the opportunity to see and study some of the greatest biodiversity in the world. Toucans and suspension bridges, poison dart frogs and zip lines, sloths and an active volcano, a dry forest and a look at the Pacific Ocean; all these are part of Costa Rica. This interim will explore the rainforest, Manuel Antonio coastal region and volcanic regions to learn about how the ecology of these regions work, how humans interact with these regions, and how we can learn to reflect on what we observe. Expect lots of hiking, never‐before‐seen encounters, a new appreciation of God's diverse creation, and a good amount of laughter and community building.
Students experience first‐hand the wonderful Cuban culture. Step back in time to what many consider the 1950s era (or is it?) and see a nation long considered our enemy…only to discover warm, kind and friendly people. They will find an intriguing mix of religions (Evangelical Christians, Catholic Christians, even idol worshipping) under the curtain of the atheistic ideology. Meet the people, visit and work with the local evangelical churches, orphanages, nursing homes, sports facilities and schools and overall have a good time while showing the love of God to a whole country living in need of Christ’s love in the flesh: you and me.
Students visit to historic sites in Venice, Florence, and Rome, Italy. The course will focus on the cultural and artistic highlights of these three cities and will stress the importance of Italian architecture and art in the development of Western Europe. Students will visit the Basilica of St. Mark’s in Venice, the Duomo in Florence, and the Sistine Chapel in Rome. There will also be opportunities to visit art museums and attend a live concert.

During this interim we will work with Trinity’s semester in Ecuador partners to provide health care to jungle‐based
populations. This interim will allow students to experience the vastness of health care disparity between the urban and
jungle settings, in addition to the disparities between persons of South America and North America. In addition to
educational and service opportunities at various locations, there will be fellowship and outreach opportunities each day.

various groups of people.
