The Office of Alumni Relations has expanded its group travel opportunities. In addition to the program that has been available for the past decade, an option for students and new alumni has been added.

Last June, 27 RIT students and recent grads participated in RIT’s first European Odyssey. The group joined alumni from two other universities to visit seven countries in 19 days, including England, France, Holland, Austria, Germany, Italy and Greece.

Participants stayed in four-star hotels and enjoyed an organized tour with guides, transportation and meals. The tour, sponsored by the RIT Alumni Network, will be repeated in June 2008. For more information, go to or contact Stefania LoMonaco ’04, associate director of Alumni Relations, at 585-475-4930.

“Parents have purchased this for their son or daughter as the ultimate graduation present,” says LoMonaco.

This past September, 28 RIT alumni and friends traveled to the Italian Riviera on what trip coordinator Barbara Carney, associate director of Alumni Relations, calls “the best trip ever.”

Tours for 2008, open to all alumni and friends, include Spain, April 15-26; Italy’s Mountains and Lakes, Aug. 13-21; China and the Yangtze River, Sep. 10-22; and Costa Rica, Nov. 5-14. For more information about the traditional travel program, go to and click on “Activities and Events, Travel Program” or call Barbara Carney at 585-475-2959.
