FAM Tour – Agents from Columbia!Posted: October 24, 2012
On October 22nd and 23rd, 18 Latin American agents (along with 6 or 7 ELS people) visited our ELS Center here in Oklahoma City – we call it a “FAM Tour”. We hope these agents will fall in love with Oklahoma City and send their students to us. Nelson, our Center Director, hosted these agents and took them on a tour of our ELS Center, OCU and a Bus Tour around Oklahoma City. I emailed all our active homestays for ideas that the agents might enjoy and received so many great recommendations. I wanted to thank each and everyone of you for helping out!
Because of time restraints, we had to weed out a few of the suggestions. The agents stayed in the beautiful Residence Inn by Marriott in Bricktown and ate dinner at Toby Keith’s I Love That Bar and Grill. There were lots of things to do very near the hotel within walking distance, such as Toby Keith’s, Bass Pro Shops, and the Bricktown Canal, which is right behind the hotel, where they could take a walk at any time, and the Centennial Land Run Monument. The area is just beautiful!
The Driving tour included Regalia Park and the Boat House District on the Oklahoma River, Brick Town Ball Park, Devon Tower, Cox Center, Chesapeake Arena, Myriad Gardens and the Crystal Bridge, Oklahoma City Memorial, Oklahoma State Capitol, Lincoln Terrace Historic Neighborhood, Oklahoma History Museum, Heritage Hills and Mesta Park, and the Asian District before arriving back at OCU. Nelson reported they had a very good time and took lots of pictures!
Thanks again for your input!
