Program Description:

USVI St CroixUniversity of the Virgin Islands - St. Croix

Described as the "gateway" to the Caribbean, the Virgin Islands of the United States is located 1100 miles east/southeast of Miami and 40 miles east of Puerto Rico. St. Thomas, St. John, Water Island and the largest island, St. Croix, comprise the U.S. Virgin Islands, the easternmost territory under the American flag. Forty miles of Caribbean Sea separate the islands of St. Thomas and St. Croix. With a population of 60,000, St. Croix encompasses 84 square miles and lies directly in the path of the easterly trade winds. Temperatures range from 70 to 90 degrees. Tropical climate, tropical foliage, warm ocean waters, and beautiful beaches aptly describe the assets of the rural island of St. Croix. Prior to 1917, when the United States purchased the islands from Denmark, the islands had been under the flags of seven nations which has resulted in a very rich and diverse heritage influenced by a combination of American, African, Danish, Spanish and French languages and cultures.
