Program Description:
2018 Winter Term CCS300 Culture and Baseball in the Dominican Republic

The cross cultural experience requires that students be immersed in a culture to learn about that culture and to learn from members of that culture.  Some of the nights will be spent in homestays, and there will be opportunities for students to become immersed in the community and to “live like a local” through visits to local markets, cultural sites, and businesses, service learning opportunities and dinners and fiestas with new local friends and family.  

There will be at least 5 games against local teams, as well as at least two practices.  There will also be at least two strength and conditioning sessions.  There will also be a lecture about the history of baseball in the Dominican Republic and the opportunity to meet and connect with Dominican players, as well as exposure to the local sports by attending at least one local game.
