AAA, USM team up to help students cruise to Bermuda
GORHAM (WGME) -- USM students are cruising to Bermuda to earn their degree.
AAA helped raise money for the program with a lunch on the Veendam Cruise Ship.
USM is sponsoring a cruise from Boston to Bermuda next year to teach hospitality students about industry and international travel.
During the school year, students will work on creating a surprise event in Bermuda for the end of the trip.
Employees with AAA say this is a great opportunity to support the travel industry.
“We have 500 employees in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont and 25% of them directly involved travel, so to support the University of Southern Maine’s program makes sense to us.” Eric Baxter, AAA, said.
In addition to the program's students, any student plus the general public can sign up to take the cruise.
