In one picture, Dr. Mickey Wadia is standing next to an ancient stone wall in Paddington, England. In another, the Austin Peay State University professor of languages and literature is near the edge of the famed White Cliffs of Dover. If you were to continue scrolling through his Facebook photos, you’d see him at the Globe Theatre, outside the grammar school William Wordsworth attended and enjoying a cup of tea in Warwick.
Wadia visits England several times a year to teach study abroad classes on Shakespeare, and this summer, local travelers will get to take advantage of his extensive knowledge of the area as he hosts an APSU Alumni Travel trip, British Landscapes, June 11-20, 2015.
Since 2011, the APSU Alumni Travel program has offered alumni and families the opportunity to reconnect with their alma mater while exploring different cultures with experts, such as Wadia. The success of the program has led the University’s Alumni Office to schedule two trips for the summer of 2015. In addition to Wadia’s tour of England, alumni also have the option of visiting Costa Rica July 18-26.
The alumni office will host two information meetings on the trips at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., Sept. 30, in room 103C of the Morgan University Center. Information on the Alumni Travel program is available online at http://www.apsu.edu/alumni/current-and-future-travel.
