This year, the Chilean Study tour was comprised of twenty-eight students and two professors. Our trip to Chile was planned for February 27th through March 7th. Unfortunately, a major earthquake struck Chile while we were in the air on our way to Santiago. We were diverted to Miami, then to Dallas and finally back to Baltimore.
In spite of the cancelled trip, the class bonded as a group. We gathered together twice during the week we were supposed to be in Chile to reminisce.

We completed the class on May 1st and have offered students the option of a rescheduled study tour in January 2011.
