Teaching, working, exploring: Dr. David Cárdenas is keeping busy in Aruba

Dr. Cardenas facilitating an evening session with industry leaders in Aruba
Dr.  Cárdenas is spending two months in Aruba as part a student/teacher international  exchange collaborative between the University of South Carolina and the University of Aruba. This great opportunity allows Dr.  Cárdenas to share his expertise with young and promising hospitality students. Dr.  Cárdenas teaches class every day from 9am-4pm, Monday through Friday. Classes are going well. The students are working hard and currently working with four companies on the island, helping them improve their tourism product and hopefully making their products more sustainable. This week,  Dr.  Cárdenas began evening seminar sessions with the tourism industry and began collecting industry data on knowledge, trust and power for a research project.  He is also helping one student with her thesis  focused on  the importance-performance of the road signage on the island. While his schedule is extremely rigorous, he still has time to engage in outdoor activities such as snorkeling, swimming, biking, and cheering on the gamecocks!
