2012 Spring Break
New York City Trip
Penn State New Kensington students are invited to attend an information session at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, in the room 138 of the Science Building. The campus is sponsoring a trip to New York City during spring break, Mar. 4-7, 2012.
The package features three nights in a Manhattan hotel, and four days of entertaining and educational activities, including a tour of the city, a Broadway show, a daytrip to the Museum of Modern Art, a tour of Liberty Island, and a visit to the United Nations. Students will have time to explore the city on their own.
“New York City is a great place to visit,” said Gary Heberling, instructor in information sciences and technology at the campus. “Diversity is all around you. And to think that we are so close to one of most fascinating cities in the world. This will be a great experience for students at Penn State New Kensington.”
The trip is being planned by the campus' Travel committee. Heberling, Amy Rustic, reference librarian, and Abhinav Aima, instructor in communications, are on the committee.
"New York is a vibrant and exciting city to visit,” Rustic said. “I think the students on this trip will learn a lot and see many interesting places."
The trip is open to Penn State New Kensington students. The cost is $920, and financial support is available to students through campus resources.
"I believe this trip will be valuable to any student interested in exploring a multicultural and multi-ethnic environment, such as New York," Aima said.
