Travel and Education

CC on the Colorado 2011Remember how you ‘hung on’ to every word your professor said in class, and how thrilling it was to have lunch on the side of the road during a class field trip?  Do you miss the academic stimulation of the Block Plan? The office of alumni relations offers several such adventures each year for alumni. We hope to see you very soon at one of our travel and educational programs.
