INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SOCIAL OUTING

On July 4th, 17 international MEd and BEd students plus 4 guests and 2 UPEI staff enjoyed a trip to the PEI National Park and Beach at Greenwich. While in Greenwich, they walked the Greenwich Dunes Trail to see the unique parabolic dune system. Luckily the weather cooperated. Everybody got a chance to dip their feet in salt water with lots of fun and laughter along the way.
