In fall 1975, the Alumni Association sponsored its first travel tour to Bavaria. Currently, the association sponsors three or four international trips per year, usually with a faculty host, choosing localities of educational and cultural interest. Some of the areas toured by Oberlin alumni include China, India, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Peru, France, Egypt, Morocco, Sweden, Iceland, and Greenland.
Why Travel with Oberlin?
‘‘First, you are traveling with people who have shared a similar experience, which makes breaking the ice a bit easier, and there is a common desire for something more than just chalking up another country or continent. Second, the faculty are fantastic. Third, Oberlin works with tour operators who specialize in tailoring tours to include more than just the high points. Fourth, for those of us who have few contacts with the school, it's a good way to get back in touch.’’ —Peg ’67 and Robert Goertz ’69
In response to the evolving coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the Oberlin College Alumni Engagement Office has made the decision to suspend upcoming alumni international travel programs until further notice.
Oberlin College will periodically reassess the opportunity to offer alumni travel programs and will be mindful of ongoing public health guidelines and recommendations.
