Extra Credit For Students Going To Final Four

ATLANTA (AP) -- It's not unusual for college students to study overseas, but how about three credits for a trip to college basketball's Final Four?

The students from Lynn University in South Florida are sports management majors and the trip is part of a course titled "The Final Four Experience." They'll travel with professors to Atlanta to get a firsthand look at what goes into the major sporting event.

The students will tour the city's pro and college sports stadiums, network with team executives and sponsors including representatives of Coca-Cola. They'll even take exams, keep a diary and give a presentation.

The 32-hundred-50 dollar per student price tag covers the class, a hotel room for six nights, food, airline tickets, two rental minivans, a Georgia Tech baseball game, a Thrashers hockey game and, of course, the Final Four.
