What makes UO Explore & Connect even more special is that it’s open to anyone who is a friend of UOlivet. “All are welcome on our adventures — alumni, faculty, staff, students, friends, and family. Traveling with people from different backgrounds and age groups makes for a more enriching and fun experience,” Hinman said. “My two adult sons will join me on the trip to Greece. Having the opportunity to travel to Greece is one thing, but sharing this once-in-a-lifetime trip with my two sons will be unforgettable.”

Whether you prefer to hop on a plane, board a motor coach, set sail on a boat, or ride the rails by train, you now have the opportunity to embark on unforgettable journeys across the United States and internationally with fellow UOlivet alumni and others through the Explore and Connect program. “Experiences will vary from long weekends to nine to 15-day explorations that will check off bucket list destinations and offer unique trips to explore new places alongside students,” Hinman said. “We’re also excited that 6% of each trip is donated back to The University of Olivet to create a travel fund for students who otherwise would not have the opportunity.”

Dust off your suitcase, pack your walking shoes and grab your passport. It’s time to explore the world!
