CONWAY, S.C. — Billie Rogers, of Rangeley, an anthropology and geography major, was one of 14 Coastal Carolina University students who traveled to Trinidad and Tabago for a Wintermester Study Abroad trip.

The students and two faculty members spent their winter break watching and studying preparations for Carnivale in Trinidad, playing and listening to calypso music and attended a Hindu wedding ceremony. The group traveled to the Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tabago. Students earned three credit hours for successfully completing one of three courses — World Music, Understanding Other Cultures and Independent Study.

Accompanying the students, instructing them and giving hands-on assignments, were Gillian Richards-Greaves, assistant professor of anthropology, and Jesse Willis, assistant professor of music and director of percussion studies.
