Africa or Bust! My Fall FAM Tour Experience        

Matt Spalding and student Alexandra Edwards at The Boma in Zimbabwe

As a student enrolled in the Tourism & Hospitality Management program at JWU, I had an amazing opportunity to travel abroad as part of the Tour Management Operations course’s FAM (Familiarization) Tour. Every student enrolled in the Tourism & Hospitality Management program takes this course before they graduate, and every term, students travel to a different destination. Our destination was Africa — South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana to be exact. Besides brief stops during cruises, this was my first time leaving the United States. That in itself was a WOW factor; my first trip abroad was to Africa! I never thought my first trip outside of the US would be to Africa out of all of the places in the world, but I am glad it was. I am also fortunate I got to experience it with fellow peers who I grew so close to during the trip. It was truly an indescribable feeling of happiness and accomplishment.
