We are ready to explore and discover the world again! 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 understand your wanderlust and your desire to look forward to something on your calendar.

As we prepare for upcoming travel opportunities, we continue to think about the safety and comfort of our travelers. Our main concern is for the well-being of our alumni and friends. We will make plans as we are able, and we will be ready if changes are necessary.

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