Trip to Paris, Provence, & Barcelona

No longer open for registration. Be looking soon for our new trip in 2016!

May 12-21, 2015*

Family & Consumer Sciences is planning a trip to Paris, Provence, and Barcelona from *May 12 - May 21, 2015. There will be a specialized emphasis placed on interior design/architecture and fashion. All students and alumni are welcome. The trip will be 10 days including flight.

Our departure will be from Washington D.C. The trip features two of Europe’s most stunning cities separated by one of the most romantic regions. The size of the Mona Lisa may surprise you, but so too will the Provence region, a source of inspiration for Louvre-dwellers like Cézanne, van Gogh, and Picasso. You’ll see La Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, and the rest with a perspective usually reserved for the most seasoned travelers.
