Biscayne Bay Campus International Students Visit the Everglades
The International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) at Biscayne Bay Campus teamed up with Bay Vista Housing (BVH) on Saturday, January 21st to take 40 students on a Miccosukee Indian Village and Everglades Airboat Tour.
Every fall and spring semester, ISSS takes a group of international students on an excursion to experience Miami. This time, students were taken to the edge of native Florida to experience the rich culture, history, and beauty of the Miccosukee Tribe. Students were treated to an educational tour of the Indian Village, a picnic lunch provided by BVH, a gripping alligator show and the opportunity to actually hold a baby alligator! The best part of the trip, for many students, was meeting new people and of course, the Airboat Ride through the Everglades.
Participants were a diverse group of international, domestic, on-campus, off-campus, undergraduate and graduate students who all had a great time! Most of them, including the local Miamians had never experienced this side of Miami and exclaimed that they couldn’t wait for the next adventure!
