Alumni Travel Program Embarks on New ‘Journey’


While an alumni travel program isn’t new to Elizabethtown College, it has been redesigned—and relaunched with a new name: Jay Journeys.

The travel program, paused in 2008 in response to the economic downturn, was reintroduced last spring. Ten alumni, including two trustees, participated in the first international offering, a river cruise trip to Holland and Belgium.

During the hiatus, the Office of Alumni Relations began planning a program redesign. Jay Journeys offers three categories of excursions: Blue Jay Fly-Aways, international trips; Blue Jay Get-Aways, domestic weekend trips; and Blue Jay Day-Aways, domestic day trips.

The Alumni Relations staff works with AHI, a firm specializing in fun and educational international alumni vacations, to plan the Fly-Aways. The College’s long-time travel program partner, AAA Travel, will assist in preparing Get-Aways and Day-Aways.

Alumni can look forward to exciting trips in the near future, including a Fly-Away to Sorrento, Italy, in late March. Those interested in this and other alumni travel opportunities can find more details at:
