I recently traveled to Cuba on a study abroad opportunity with Steamboat Springs Professor Bob Gumbrecht and his merry band of students and faculty. For me, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to not only visit Cuba, but to be thrust into its culture, politics, customs, and beauty. Colorado Mountain College, Bob Gumbrecht and Cynthia Zyzda did a wonderful job of organizing the trip. They worked tirelessly on finalizing our very busy but extensive itinerary. There is no way that I could have done and seen as much on my own, much less been bathed in the day-to-day lives of so many Cubans.
CMC as a whole encourages students to get out and experience what the world has to offer, whether it be hiking in Nepal or immersing oneself in the culture in Costa Rica, studying art and sustainability in Cuba or international relations in Switzerland. Many of the CMC student body are adventurers, and the availability of these Study Abroad opportunities are awesome. Thanks!!
