We view our travel program as an extension of the classroom. We add substance to each trip by making them intellectually rewarding with a Dickinson expert, providing frequent talks to deepen your appreciation of the destination, and arranging local experts to offer unique opportunities for Dickinson travelers.

“It was a great group—we had alums from the class of 2013 to the class of 1958—and the daily interactions and discussions were every bit as interesting and fun as the events, the sites and the merrymaking.” 

“I didn't know any of [the other alumni on] the trip, and I will never forget any of them. I think the common experience of Dickinson made things comfortable from the start.”
