The Washington University community shares a love of learning. To this end, every year the Alumni Association hosts an array of engaging travel experiences through its Travel Program. Together, alumni, parents and friends explore other cultures and delve into the history of other locales.
Last year, more than 160 alumni and friends participated in the Travel Program, and Sandy Rothschild, AB ’67, MBA ’71, was among them. Rothschild took a two-week journey featuring a nine-night cruise to Antarctica in February 2012. He says, “Every aspect of the trip was delightful. The ship was first-class, and everything was well planned.
“Also, talking with people was easy because we share such common backgrounds. I met people who had also traveled extensively abroad. We discussed the university, as well as what we have done in our post-university lives.”
The 2013 Travel Program offers exciting excursions that go far beyond the regular group tour. These trips provide excellent learning opportunities in some of the most fascinating and culturally rich locations around the globe. Washington University faculty often participate, lending their expertise.
