Open to focus group students, the Catalina Island Marine Institute (CIMI) trip allows students to enjoy a variety of hands-on labs and field activities in marine science and island ecology such as terrestrial and astronomy hikes, snorkeling, kayaking, and most importantly, bonding with one another through team building exercises.
Students take a two-week trip to Armenia to visit Yerevan and neighboring cities and areas to experience the life, food, and culture of Armenia.
