For the first time, the Office of Alumni Relations is partnering with the German Department to offer an amazing trip. Fairy tales are real, and we plan to visit them during May Term with Martin Ulrich, associate professor of German and music and chair of Lakeland's Creative Arts Division, and some of his students as we venture through Germany. The dates are May 11-24. The cost of this 13-day trip is $2,500 per person. This cost includes: airfare, accommodations, breakfasts, and a few of the dinners.
