Culture Quest 2012

The second annual Culture Quest, a 10-day study trip, took place in South Africa from May 20-30, 2012. Nine student teams travelled from Johannesburg to Cape Town, with a few teams visiting Swaziland and Lesotho along the way. Lauder students’ interactions with the local Southern African community included visits with families in Soweto, interviewing South African business owners, and learning local dances in Swaziland. The students’ journey through this region offered a unique way to experience South African culture in a short period of time. The quest culminated with a lecture and luncheon at the Hamilton Russell Vineyards hosted by Wharton alumnus Anthony Hamilton Russell and his wife Olive at their winery in the Western Cape.
