E&H Alumni and Students Visit Cuba

Posted December 15, 2023

Dr. Mark Finney (E&H Professor of Media and Communication) has led student trips to Cuba for years, and for the first time in 2023 invited alumni to join the excursion. The response was strong, and a great group of E&H alumni and community friends joined the trip for an unforgettable week based in Havana where they toured much of the island. Students and alumni forged new friendships and experienced a country once considered completely inaccessible to U.S. citizens. You can get a flavor for the trip by listening to a short podcast series wherever you listen–called “Cuban Excursion,” produced by student Anthony Smith, Jr. ’25.
