  • From a Past Traveler:

    "Do you want a relaxing, stress-free, safe, fun, educational and exciting international travel opportunity? Then join the CSS alumni travel tours! Although I've lived in and travel to many countries, often by myself, and speak a few languages, I thoroughly enjoyed the last two trips with the CSS alumni group (Italy/France and Ireland). You have the opportunity to stay with the group for tours and/or take time off on your own. The CSS travel group are interesting people, they look out for everyone and are a lot of FUN! So give it a try and you won't regret it! (Yes, I kissed the Blarney stone in Ireland!)"

  • From a Past Traveler:

    "Although I am not a St. Scholastica Alumnus, ten years ago my husband and I were invited to tag along with my sister and brother-in-law on a trip to Rome with St. Scholastica's Alumni Travel Program...and we have been "tagging along" ever since. The 2010 trip to Ireland in September was more than I could have hoped for in so many ways. If we had done this trip on our own we would have missed seeing so many lovely, quaint places, and moreover we wouldn't have known enough to know what we were missing...and that, in short, could have been the real culture and beauty of the country. However, our terrific guide, Michael Nolen, with his wonderful Irish wit and historical knowledge gave us an authentic taste of that culture and beauty. All in all it was an amazing experience thanks in no small part to the attention to detail afforded us by the St. Scholastica Alumni Travel Program staff. Thank you, all."

  • From a Past Traveler:

    "This was my fourth alumni sponsored trip and they all have been wonderful. Cuba was an exceptionally intriguing opportunity because of the long history of the revolution. .. the learnings from the visits to a Cubian community center, Down’s Syndrome project, an organic farm with lunch and rides in 1950’s automobiles were experiences one should never miss in a lifetime."

    – Susan Koering ’73
