Over the last few years Seneca has invited Contiki to be a part of the tourism curriculum.  Through class presentations, the Contiki Champions web training, career fairs and experiential day trips students have been able to become experts on the Contiki product before entering the travel industry. Seneca students and faculty are always amazing to work with and are enthusiastic to stay ahead of the curve, and provide the best tools and experiences.  We look forward to working with Seneca even more in the future.
