He will also share photos from the 2021 study abroad trip to Nepal during which students will spend 21 days studying geography, environmental science, experience the language and culture of the area and explore the villages below Mount Everest, and possibly make the trip to Everest basecamp.

Kedrowski is a mountain geographer and CMC adjunct faculty member who has summitted Everest three times.
