Winterim overseas trip 'fun,
educational' for UNL students
By Paula Damke
Student participants in the winterim
flight-study tours "had a ball," according to an
evaluation questionnaire filled out by those
Evelyn Jacobsen, director of the UNL
Flight-Study Tours office, said what complaints
there were centered on London hotel
accommodations, which students said were
inadequate. Other students, she said, would have
preferred more explanation prior to the trip on
customs of the countries, currency exchange and
customs-duty when returning to the United
She said the majority of students in evaluating
the educational value of the trip thought the
overseas experience was more educational than
an on-campus three-week summer school course.
Most of the participants said that, despite the
costs involved, overseas trips can be possible for
most students if they choose to plan ahead and
save carefully, Jacobsen said.
Participants in the London-Paris winterim
flights were apparently all satisfied with their
three-week traveling in Europe.
Jeannie Chandler, a participant in the
International Advertising Seminar in London,
said she had a "fantastic" time. She said the
course itinerary was well planned and the
sidetrips to Oxford were adequate and timed
Chandler said she had heard so much about
the International Advertising Seminar and the
city of London, she said she was glad she had an
opportunity to go.
Dave Melena, a participant in the Comparative
Economic System course, said if it wasn't for the
tour he might not have gotten in the communist
The economic group visited Czechslovakia,
Yugoslavia, Austria and France.
LVnn Vinduska, a participant in the
Agronomy course which went to Israel, said the
"holy land was unbelievable" and the only
course change she suggested was a different hotel
in London where the group stayed two nights.
Julie Carr, a participant in second year French
course, said for her the flight-study tour was a
chance to go to France and see many of the
things she had studied.
Nancy Johnson, a participant in the Drama in
Performance course, she said wishes she could
have stayed longer.
She said she had always wanted to see
England, in particular London and
Stratford-on-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace. The
tour, she said, gave her a chance to see it at a
very reasonable price and get credit in her
Pam Meyer,, a participant in the second year
German course, which travelled in Germany said
she learned more in those two and a half weeks
than in any other college course she had taken.
Those students who participated in the flight
only, said they wished it had been made clearer
that a student could take only the flight and not
have to take a course for credit.
Jacobsen said considering both the Paris and
London flights had groups which went all over
Europe and still managed to catch the flight
home, she said, it is evident the tours were well
She said the flight-study tours have
renegotiated contracts with TWA for charter
flights over the 1975 winterim to London and
The Flight-Study tours, she said, is offering a
Peru-Ecuador flight and study tour leaving May
16 and returning June 5.
She said 12 study tours are being offered, in
the areas of dance, art, zoology, economics,
language, education, criminal justice, and
The round trip airfare is $387.00 plus the
additional cost of land arrangements she said.
The Peru-Ecuador flight is not full and she
said she urges students to come in and see the
flight-study tours office for more information.
