- ABOUT OUR TRAVEL GROUP -
Our annual spring break travel group is diverse - students, faculty, administrators, alumni, family and friends, and the community-at-large. We are friendly, looking for fun, excitement, and new educational experiences. Many in our group are seasoned travelers. We welcome all participants! You may not know everyone at the beginning of the trip, but you will have the opportunity to make new friends and get to know everyone by the end. Your first opportunity to meet everyone will be at our February group meeting before departure.
Many participants travel with their family or close friends. Do you have someone you would like to accompany you on this trip – bring them, the more the merrier!
Small groups will form daily to seek out similar interests – join a group if you wish. You’re an independent traveler, not an issue, we are here when you need us.
While some sites on the trip will be planned, the majority of your time will be yours. Do what you want, for as long as you wish, when you want to do it, and with whom. It is your trip. Search your local library and the web to find sites of personal interest in the locations we are visiting. Bookstores have many different types of travel guides that can offer walking tours, restaurants, museums, churches, and other points of interest that are not to be missed. DK Eyewitness Travel Guides are one of many excellence travel book resources.
Our ultimate goal on this trip is to create memories that will last a life time. We hope you can join us!
