STAYING CONNECTED
ALUMNI TRAVEL PROGRAMS

The Rensselaer Alumni Association sponsors six tours a year to destinations around the world. The trips are a wonderful opportunity for alumni of all ages to travel—at a great price—with a group of fellow Rensselaer alumni.

The Alumni College tour (next year to Sorrento, Italy) is especially popular. The trip includes lectures and excursions, and gives participants an in-depth view of the local area. This year’s Alumni College in Ireland was a sellout!

For more information on upcoming tours, contact program coordinator John Buckley ’49 at (518) 274-6562 or write to him c/o Office of Alumni Relations, 1301 Peoples Ave., Troy, NY 12180.
