Oregon Study Tour (May 25 - June 2, 2019)

The Oregon Adventure 

Come join us on an immersion experience where we can explore the drama of life in classic and contemporary fashion at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon; one of the oldest and largest professional regional theatres in the nation. The trip will include attending seven diverse plays, pre-show talks and workshops with theatre professionals, backstage tours and our own group discussion.

The trip is framed not only to explore the nature of humans expressed by great playwrights through theatre, but also to expose participants to the issues of humans and nature as we get out and explore the beautiful and rugged Rogue River Valley. Nestled in the valley where the Siskiyou and Cascade mountain meet, Ashland and the surrounding area abounds in natural beauty. We will hike into the mountain, picnic in historic Lithia Park, and spend a day whitewater rafting on the Klamath River.

The study tour program is part of the 2019 Summer term and includes one course or 3-credit hours for qualified students. Please contact your study tour director for details. Financial aid may also be available to eligible students. You may contact the Financial Aid Office for more details.
