Travel and tourism students from Sussex Downs College visited New York as part of their studies.
The group received a shout out on the big screen at Madison Square Gardens from the New York Knicks during their five-day visit.
Ricardo Rodriguez, travel and tourism student at Sussex Downs College, said, “Visiting New York was a once in a life time experience for me.
“We had such a great time, learning about the importance of customer service delivered by Virgin Atlantic, Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden staff.
“We also learnt first-hand about the impact 9/11 has had on security. It was fascinating.”
