** Photo department plans Euro-trip

The photography department is sponsoring a trip to Greece and Italy for the upcoming summer semester of 2008. This trip is designed to give participants college credit for three or more photography courses.

This trip, which costs $3950, includes college tuition, airport-related taxes, twin room accommodations for twelve nights, and breakfast, a relative bargain compared to other college travel plans.

This photographic adventure will travel through Greece for five days before heading to Northern Italy. Enrollment is limited. Applications can be downloaded at http://www.sdcity.edu/voctech/phot/ or stop by to pick one up. Got questions? Email Dave Eichinger at [email protected] or call 619-388-3368.
