The University of Minnesota Alumni Association has organized a once in a lifetime tour for 2019 grads: Essential Europe, May 26-June 13, 2019. Graduating students have the opportunity to join their Gopher classmates on this incredible journey and see the highlights of Europe before settling into grad school or a job. From the pomp and pageantry of London to the snow-capped Austrian Alps; from the glorious art of Florence to the sun-kissed beaches of Greece, Europe’s infinite variety of people, places, and traditions are the perfect setting for a journey that celebrates and educates. Capture the flavor of the cities and the beauty of the countryside; sample the delicacies and specialties of eight wondrous countries – Europe, in all its splendor, awaits.
A traveler from last year writes: "You get super close with the people you travel and make friendships that will last a lifetime, I still am in contact with the people I traveled with through this trip."
