Dear Young Alumni and Friends,

Can you think of a better way to travel than with fellow University of Minnesota Alumni?

The University of Minnesota Alumni Association Travel Program offers young alumni the opportunity to explore interesting destinations with individuals in the same age range, with similar backgrounds and experiences. Join us on a well-designed, hassle-free tour where the details are handled for you, but you'll still have ample time to explore on your own.

Enjoy the camaraderie of traveling with other alumni from UMN and peer institutions, ages 22 – 35. Each carefully selected program provides social, cultural, and recreational activities and many opportunities for learning. Our young alumni tours are a great value, operated by a travel company with over 45 years experience in the young adult travel market. Click on the buttons below to find detailed itineraries, pricing, travel dates or to book online.

If you have any questions about our young alumni travel, please contact our tour operator AESU Alumni World Travel by emailing: alumni@aesu.com or call 800.638-7640. To connect with someone at the UMAA regarding the travel program or alumni membership, email: umtravel@umn.edu or call 612-624-2323.
