From the New South to Gambia...
For many students, January (otherwise known as J-term) is a needed break between semesters. For two groups of Bay Path Students, they spent their J-term immersing themselves in two vastly different experiences. Follow their footsteps by reading their blogs…
“One America” The New South Trip
In January 2009, Bay Path students visited the mid-South in a life-changing trip—2010 promises to be just as powerful.
The New South “One America” trip is following the Civil Rights Trail for eight days. From Birmingham to Montgomery to Selma to Jackson to Natchez to New Orleans, students will visit historic sites, meet people who moved mountains, and gain a greater appreciation of one of the most pivotal moments in America’s history: the Civil Rights Movement. This trip is funded through the generosity of the Pat Pierce Student Achievement Fund and our WalMart grant . Check out their blog!

From scholarship program to book drives, undergraduates will work one-on-one with children in Africa.
In yet another incredible student experience, Professor John Jarvis accompanied two Bay Path students to The Gambia, West Africa, in continuation of our partnership with the Sajuka Elementary School. The students' participation in this journey was made possible through a generous gift from Venessa O'Brien '38. While in The Gambia, Prof Jarvis and the students spent time with Nyillan Fye '09, who is also currently pursuing her MS in Nonprofit Management and Philanthropy through Bay Path online.
