There are so many wonderful immersion education opportunities at Xavier! Some, quite naturally, as in the way that mountain streams flow, involve going to the great wilderness! 

This summer, Xavier Expeditions offers excursions to: Yellowstone (including Jackson Hole and surrounding wilderness); Wrangell-St. Elias, Alaska; and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Each expedition allows 6 CORE Credits. Credits are in Theological Perspectives (THEO 200), Philosophical Perspectives (PHIL 200), Lit and the Moral Imagination (ENGL 205), Natural Science (BIOL 258), Gen Biology w/lab (BIOL 128/9). You can receive credits for ER/S, enviro science, peace studies, natural science, gen humanities and free electives. EVERY EXPEDITION is open to ALL MAJORS.

Come experience for yourself why Earth is our primary context, our primary reality. This context is so critical. It's one thing to intellectually grasp why we are "owned" by water; it's another to experience it!
