In January 2020, members of the BMB will travel to Sydney, Australia followed by a 12-night cruise to New Zealand. Incoming freshmen are invited to travel, but your participation is completely voluntary and your decision will not affect your admission to BMB. We have 475 spots reserved but all 475 spots are currently spoken for. If you want to go, you'll need to be put on the wait list. We expect several drops before the Fall so your chances of getting a spot are very good. For more information, please see the "International Trip 2020" page under the "About" tab. Please read the trip details carefully before answering this question. Do you plan to travel to Australia & New Zealand?
