Regional Gatherings



As Joseph Campbell often reminded us, the meaning of life is found through the visceral experience of being alive. Sometimes, however, it takes a bit of planning to make these experience happen. That’s where we come in!
Throughout the year, we offer CMASAS students a wide range of regional gatherings located throughout the world. While locations change every year, our most recent gatherings have taken place in New York City; Portland, Oregon; and Oahu, Hawaii to name a few.

These are simple and casual gatherings where CMASAS students get together to meet and explore the local area. Each regional gathering is personalized and based on what the students are most interested in.

To get an idea of what a regional gathering looks like, take a look here at our recent gathering in NYC. Yes, it was cold, but after looking at great art at MoMA, eating at a diner with Broadway stars, and then drinking hot cocoa at Bryant Park, the snowflakes were icing on the proverbial cake.

If you have an idea of where you’d like a regional gathering to be held, please let your PEC know.

 Portland, Oregon

What better way to experience the beautiful fall colors than with fellow classmates in Portland, Oregon at a world famous corn maze and pumpkin patch?



CMASAS students explored the ancient city of Ayutthaya, rode boats through the canals, and tasted quite possibly the most delicious food in the world. 

New York City

Students from all over met to explore the Museum of Modern Art, sing showtunes with Broadway singers, and ice skate in the snow at Bryant Park. Oh, and yes!, hot chocolate was definitely on the menu.


Washington, D.C.

Led by PEC, Kimberly McEachen, students met up to experience the famous landmarks in D.C., including the Washington Monument, the Botanical Gardens, and the Smithsonian. The image below was created by one of the students on the trip!
