Aloha! Join Us for the Triton Spring Break Trip   to Hawaii between March 10--18 (5 overnights)
During Spring Break, The Undergraduate Center of Triton College will offer another exciting travel/study opportunity: A 6-day trip to Hawaii, including Oahu and Maui!

As in all of Triton's travel opportunities, this trip represents an unbeatable combination of very low cost and high value. The total cost for students under 25 years old will come in under $1799,  and will be due by December 10, 2000. The first $45 of this (a non-refundable registration fee) is due when you send in your application, and will hold your seat. A limited number of $200 Triton Undergraduate Center study/travel scholarships are available. CLICK HERE for an itemized breakdown of all costs and fees.
 

The cost includes round-trip air fare from Chicago, departure fees, all island and inter-island transportation (bus, airplane), all hotels; two meals a day; the services of a full-time professional guide; cultural activities, and course materials. To qualify for the very low cost, participants must be Triton students, but the cost above includes in-district tuition for a 2 credit-hour college level (transferable) class "HUMANITIES 299:  "Colonial Hawaii." Everyone who goes will register for this class (which will meet on the trip). You will therefore be "a registered Triton student," and thus eligible to go!

These people obviously are NOT Undergraduate Center travellers. They are involved in other things, and not even looking at Diamond Head, much less climbing it. No doubt  they are discussing Hawaii's colonial history in place of more rigorous physical amusements..
