NIU Alumni Travel is open to anyone interested in educational travel, including alumni, parents, families, and friends of the university.

Ready to explore the world? We are! Come see where we’re headed and join the pack.

It is exciting to think of new travel adventures and destinations we have dreamed about. Whether it is to explore, to learn, to socialize, or merely to see and hear the sights and sounds of a new destination, we have something for everyone.

Our main concern is for the well-being of our alumni and friends. Please note that travel is inherently risky, and please take caution to ensure that you are prepared, insured, and informed about your plans and about your desired destination. Not every tour is for everyone, and things like mobility, length of time, and location should all be a part of your consideration.

We thank you for your continued support of NIU and the Alumni Association Travel Program LLC, and we look forward to sharing new travel adventures. Please bookmark this page for future travel announcements.
