In May 2024, students will have the opportunity to participate in a pilgrimage and study abroad program centered on the Camino de Santiago. In preparation for the pilgrimage, students will take a course called, "Living the Good Life," in which they will receive the tools they need to develop good habits for this journey in Spain and their journey through life. The course will discuss the history and spirituality of the Camino de Santiago, as well as caring for one's spiritual, bodily, and mental health. The program is led by Fr. Eduardo Rivera, Dr. Ulyses Balderas, and Dr. Jo Meier Marquis. All funds raised will help defray the costs for students, who might never have the opportunity to participate in this once in a lifetime pilgrimage.
