The International Students Association used its Spring Break to introduce princesses, princes, animals and magic castles to its members. ISA members spent the week at Disney World on a trip sponsored by the school.
Joline Keevy, assistant director of the International Education Center said, “The trip was intended to expose international to popular American culture outside of Savannah, Georgia.”
The trip was paid for with funds from the ISA and partially from each member who travelled with the group.
From March 6-9, about 20 students accompanied by three advisers from the International Education Center visited Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom and Epcot. it was a week full of fun at Disney World from March 6th – 9, 2017.
The school bus left Savannah State University at 10 a.m. that Monday and arrived in Orlando at about 5:30 p.m.
Starting in the Magic Kingdom, students tried different rides, and screamed until theirs voices went hoarse when they saw the seven dwarfs. The evening ended with beautiful fireworks in front of Cinderella Castle.
The next day the group split into two. Some students visited Hollywood Studios, and the other half visited Animal Kingdom. For some, it was the first time they’d seen animals such as a giraffe. It was a new experience for many of these students as they watched Star Wars, Beauty and the Beast and Frozen live performance on stage.
On the last day of the trip, the group visited Epcot. Many of these students didn’t want to leave the happiest place on Earth.
