Trip to Ellis and Liberty Island
As part of the Inclusiveness Initiatives Fund Grant awarded to the International Student Orientation Committee (ISOC) in December 2007, spring and fall entrants of the Class of 2011 were able to participate in an educational field trip to Liberty Island and Ellis Island in New York City on Sunday, March 30, 2008. The pictures taken by the participants and their comments about the trip (see below) illustrate how much they learned about the cultural and social history of the United States.
