New York City – Sept. 29 – Oct. 1, 2017

Ten students from the Honors and Leadership programs joined Dr. McManus and Dr. Brown on a weekend trip to New York City. It was a whirlwind tour of the Museum of Modern Art, Central Park, Chinatown, the Ground Zero Memorial, the Museum of Natural History, the Statue of Liberty and lots of good food. The highlight of the trip was going to Broadway plays.
