Sam Sussman, an 18-year-old from Orange County, coolly delivered an address supporting gay rights in October 2009 at the National Equality March in Washington, D.C. The politics, philosophy and law major had earned the spot in the march by winning an “Equality Idol” contest on YouTube in which he discussed the importance of gay rights.
The Binghamton University Alumni Association and Department of Theatre will offer an extended tour of South America in January 2009. The tour is open to the public. This trip, which runs from January 12 – 23, will include tours of Buenos Aires, Argentina and Santiago, Chile. Faculty members Tom Kremer and Carol Hanscom will serve as guides.
Travelers will experience a variety of sites and attractions in Buenos Aires including café life to shopping and fine dining. In Santiago (pictured), travelers will find boutiques, restaurants and a bustling nightlife, as well as a wide range of city parks, museums, monuments and live performers. Due to favorable exchange rates, travelers should get good value for their money in South America.
The cost of the trip is $2,950 per person, which includes airfare, shared accommodations, itinerary activities and some meals. A $500 deposit is required by October 15 to reserve a spot on this trip.
