When I was 15, I participated in a Duke University travel program for high school students in Costa Rica where we studied biology. Many of Duke’s alumni travel programs continue to have a science component and participants can learn about ecology in the Galapagos or travel with a local naturalist along the Amazon. www.dukealumni.com.
Penn State offers approximately 40 programs a year to its alumni and their friends and family. The Nittany Lion’s programs have some great themes, like “Hemingway’s Footsteps” study tour, where participants visit Paris, San Sebastian, Pamplona, and Madrid, following in the great author’s path. www.alumni.psu.edu/travel.
Finally, to fly with the Univ. of Texas Flying Longhorn travel program contact the alumni office at www.texasexes.org/travel/fl.asp.
The Univ. of California and its BEAR TREKS program provide alumni travel programs to the 92,000 members of the California Alumni Association. The program is administered by Berkeley’s alumni office: alumni.berkeley.edu/travel.
