With the fall coming up fast, many students may be looking for opportunities to explore places that they may not have visited before. They can fulfill this desire with the upcoming trip to Portland, Maine that is being run by Student Activities.

Those who want to get out of Rhode Island for the day have the chance to attend this trip on October 15th from 7a.m. to 11p.m., including travel time. Those attending will be in the city from about 11:30a.m. to 7:30p.m. before heading back to Rhode Island College.

Michelle Arias, a student activities trips and events coordinator commented,“The goal of this trip is to give students a new experience and allow them to explore a different part of New England.”

Arias commented that there is an array of activities to do in Portland such as shopping, dining, sightseeing and exploring. Cape Elizabeth is one of the main attractions, and is definitely a hot spot to visit if you attend this trip.

With fall just beginning and tickets costing only $8 for RIC students and $12 for non-RIC students, there is no better way to spend a Saturday than in a different state surrounded by nature, culture, and new experiences.
