Provost Scholars Yearly Grand Field Trip
In the fall and spring semesters, the Provost Scholars visit local museums, theaters, science centers and neighborhood attractions to enrich their learning and knowledge of different cultures, histories and subject areas. Outside of these regular field trips the Provost Scholars will will visit a larger tourist attraction to celebrate their completion of the year.
In May 2015, the Provost Scholars visited Niagara Falls Park in Niagara Falls, New York. The Scholars visited the Niagara Adventure Theater, Cave of the Winds, Maid of the Mist, Aquarium of Niagara, and Niagara Gorge Discovery Center. Each student and participating chaperon received a day pass into the Park, as well as meals and transportation. In the following years, the Provost Scholars visited Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2016, Detroit, Michigan in 2017, and Columbus, Ohio in 2018. The 2019 Grand Field Trip is being planned for Oberlin and Sandusky, Ohio.
