Go to the Yucatan!

Now is the time to sign up for the Rutgers LA winter 2008/2009 course in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. This class can count as either your jr/sr colloquium or a multicultural class (but not both). It will be taught by Jason Husveth. UPDATED: Check in with Rutgers Study Abroad http://studyabroad.rutgers.edu/index.html Phone: 732/932-7787

On an unrelated note, Felipe Calderon, the President of Mexico has just visited New Brunswick announcing his intention to open a consulate here. According to the Home News and Tribune:

Latinos, and Mexicans in particular, make up a sizable portion of Central Jersey's population. According to census figures released in May, the Latino population in the state grew by 1.25 percentage points, to 1,382,000 from 2006 and 2007. Latinos in New Jersey account for almost 16 percent of the state's population, a percentage near equal to country's overall Hispanic population.

The NY Times Great homes page has the Yucatan Village and Resort. This is NOT where our students will be staying.
