The World is Your Classroom: Explore, Discover, and Learn
College of Arts and Sciences
St. Augustine said “The world is a book, and he who has not traveled has read only one page.”
Lifelong learners, including SCU alumni fifty “and better,” are invited to return to the classroom and continue the excitement of learning in the company of fellow Broncos. Last year, SCU’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) introduced a travel program that takes learning out of the classroom. Their motto is “The World is your classroom: Explore, Discover, and Learn.”
The Learning Through Travel Program is open to OLLI members, SCU alumni, and friends and family of SCU. The program offers small, educationally-oriented trips that are helping travelers to both renew old friendships and to forge new ones as they deepen their knowledge of the world. Last year, SCU travelers cruised on the Rhine and Mosel Rivers, arrived in Cuba the first day the US embargo ended, enjoyed the hidden treasures of Tuscany and Umbria, explored the wonders of Turkey including a cruise on the Turquoise Coast, discovered magical music along the Blue Danube, and spent five days romancing the arts in Los Angeles visiting world class museums and attending a concert in the Disney Concert Hall.
The program has announced seven destinations for 2016: Cuba, Ireland, Sicily, Turkey, a cruise from Portugal to London, a weekend in Chicago, and a trip to Oregon and the Shakespeare festival. You’ll have to act quickly to reserve a place on one of these great destinations. The trip to Cuba is already closed, but there are still limited spaces available on the other trips.
Here’s how you can learn more about the program: visit the Learning Through Travel website and attend the informational program “The World is Your Classroom” on Friday, October 9, at the Grand Reunion from 11 a.m. – noon. You may also email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
