It’s that time, to start thinking about our ninth (!!) May Term Thailand trip! This year’s trip is tentatively scheduled for May 14, 2017 through June 11, 2017. The total cost of the trip is $4,300, which includes round trip airfare from Salt Lake City to Bangkok, Thailand, all ground (and water) travel during the trip, all lodging, all meals, and all fees. It does not include any passport fees (if you need to renew or get one), immunizations and travel clinic fees, snacks and beverages during the trip, souvenirs, or optional side trips while on the island.
To register for this trip, please download and fill out the May Term registration form, sign and initial everything, and bring a copy to the Cashier’s Office in Bamberger Hall at 9:00 am on Tuesday, October 25. If you didn’t have a chance to do this, Sara Demko will have copies at the Cashier’s Office Tuesday morning. Also have ready a $300 deposit, which can be cash, check , or charge card (no Visa, sorry). We will cap the trip at 24 students, so please register early if you are interested in participating. Last year, the trip filled in less than 5 hours!
