The Seville Heritage Park in St. Ann on Thursday (Jan.12) hosted some 600 students from the Lynn University in Florida, who toured the facility as part of the institution’s heritage and culture programme.
“We believe that all of our students should have international experience and so we have brought our first year students to Jamaica for them to see the culture and the heritage,” said Gregory Malfitano, the university’s senior vice president for administration and student services.
The tour, he told JIS News, provided worthwhile knowledge for the students, who were studying western culture as part of their curriculum. “Studying the culture is great but when our students can see it and be a part of it, then it becomes even more special,” he said.
Vice president of Fugazy International Travel, Scott Grody, who helped organize the tour, pointed out that Seville Heritage Park was chosen because of the site’s rich culture and heritage.
“This is the second year that Fugazy International Travel has assisted in organizing the Lynn University academic adventure and we are delighted to be here where our students can experience this wonderful opportunity,” he said.
Meanwhile, Operations Manager for the Seville Heritage Park, Joan Seagers, told JIS News that, “we have a massive educational project going on here at Seville and this is just the beginning of a good thing knowing that foreign students can come here and learn about our heritage. We want to reach out to other universities abroad so that they too can experience this opportunity,” she said.
