About 35 students – mostly freshmen – from the UND Department of Aviation -- piled into a bus on Sept. 16 for a daylong journey north of the border. The trip was the first of many “Weekends in Winnipeg” trips organized by the UND International Center as a way to give students an accessible international experience.
