TRAVEL BEYOND EXPECTATIONS WITH THE 2017 COLLECTION

WELCOME TO THE TRAVEL COLLECTION

For over half a century, the Alumni Association has had the good fortune to travel to one destination: different.  This year, we’re continuing our journey to places that have thousands of stories to tell. Places that are unreachable for most, but not to us. Each of these trips has been designed for discerning travelers and members of the Alumni Association. The 2018 collection will continue this tradition and will be announced on April 3, but we still have spaces to fill from 2017 for those wanting to take off sooner. Look at our extraordinary trips and let us know where we can take you.
