Kayak down the Colorado River, parasail over turquoise waters in Maui, or hike the highest peak in Sweden—all vicariously—through Collin College’s free lecture series called “Passport to the World.” Several professors and staff share their worldwide travel experiences at various Collin College campuses and provide free samples of foods from the featured country or region. (Attendees are also welcome to bring their own lunches.)
