Travel

Alumni tours are organized and hosted with help from Hope faculty members, making them true educational experiences.

Alumni Abroad ToursOn a tour with Hope, alumni learn about the history, culture, art and language of the areas they visit. Opportunities to connect with friends from the Hope community create special bonds for participants.

A Tradition of Travel

Hope College began hosting international educational tours in 1992 for Hope alumni, parents and friends. Tours continued to grow in popularity over the years, and alumni have traveled to such destinations as Sicily, the Galapagos, Dubrovnik and Africa. Tours typically take place in the summer and last for 10–14 days.

Explore and Learn

The most recent trip, a 2014 travel seminar to Central Europe, was a huge success and wonderful experience. You can see some of the group's adventures on Facebook and Twitter.
