The local guide and driver were really helpful and friendly. The students enjoyed experiencing Cuba and getting to know some of its unique history and culture. The rapid changes there made us all very glad to have visited at this time."

Group Photo of WKU University, School of Law Students at Hemingway House in Havana, 2015. Photo Courtesy of Professor Walker Rutledge " Our study-tour with Authentic Cuba was indeed successful—successful because the group returned intellectually challenged to articulate the complexity of our nearest Caribbean neighbor. As a couple of students observed, they doubted that they had been exposed to so much information in such a short length of time since they were infants. Our readings and field trips took us across the breadth of Cuban culture—from politics to literature, from Ché Guevara to Ernest Hemingway, from agriculture to the cigar industry, from the Bay of Pigs to the Straits of Florida.
Everywhere we went the Cuban people greeted us with amazing hospitality and genuine warmth. As soon as they learned that we were from Estados Unidos, they immediately wanted to strike up a conversation or invite the students to participate in a dance. As individuals, we could not have felt more welcomed. It was hard to believe that our governments have been at odds with each other. We were also keenly aware that we were at the cusp of major changes that are rapidly occurring in this island nation and returned grateful for having had the opportunity to experience Cuba when we did. Future study-abroad programs with Authentic Cuba are certainly in the interest of WKU and its students as we embrace our university's international vision.
