When associate teaching professor Dr. Leslie Miles and adjunct faculty member Curt Newman took their students to the Fazer Chocolate Factory tour during the Finland section of the clinical practicum for the public and global health nursing course, little did they know that they would be met with an exciting surprise!

After taking their students to the factory for years, they had become well-known among the tour guides. They were told that this year they would be the 500,000th visitors of the Fazer Factory, and as a reward would be receiving two giant-sized candy bars! They were asked if they would be okay posing for some photos, and they delivered!

Miles was elated and says, “[Curt] was just, like, beside himself. And I will confess I was jumping up and down. It was like winning the golden ticket in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!”

The group also received a considerable discount on the chocolate purchased, and the students were quick to put it to good use.
