Two Opportunities to Travel Abroad Open to TWU Friends, Community Members

With parts of the world reopening to travelers, TWU faculty and staff are planning to lead several trips abroad in 2022. For two of those trips, both in May, TWU alumni, friends, families, and community members are invited to travel on these overseas adventures.


Athens, Greece - May 2022

The first trip, “Intercultural Studies in Greece” is scheduled for May 10-18. Starting in Athens (Greece, not Tennessee!), travelers will tour the Acropolis, visit the Olympic Stadium, and explore the modern city, as well as nearby Cape Sounion. After a day-long cruise to the Saronic Islands, travelers will have guided tours of Epidaurus, Mycenae, Olympia, and Delphi.


The trip will be led by Dr. Elizabeth Rulemen, Professor of English, and Dr. Sharon Brown, Professor of Math.


The Black Experience: London, Paris, Amsterdam - May 2022

Ms. Delunda “Candy” Maddux, TWU’s Director of Career Development and Multicultural Affairs, will lead a trip entitled “The Black Experience: London, Paris, Amsterdam.” Designed to provide insight to the African diaspora, this program offers facilitated discussions and guided learning; topics such as change and continuity will prompt new and engaging perspectives while inviting critical thinking about the evolution of these communities, their complex pasts, and their vibrant presents.


“The Black Experience” trip runs May 9-20 and flies out of Chattanooga.


Both trips are being organized through EF College Tours. Potential travelers for either trip can enroll for $95. While the trips are considered study abroad, any non-students who would like to attend are welcome without any academic requirement. EF’s Peace of Mind and COVID-19 programs ensure that if plans change because of unforeseen circumstances, traveler’s investment is protected.


More information for both trips is available at on the Study Abroad webpage or by emailing
