About the Program

What could be more fun than traveling with alumni, family and friends? Discover new places as you roam with your university!

The UB Alumni Association travel program is open to all alumni, parents and friends of the institution. These programs have specially selected faculty lecturers, chosen to enhance your experience and enrichment.

One of the great pleasures of these trips is the opportunity for alumni to immerse themselves in the experiences as companions in travel. These programs offer opportunities to learn about geological, ecological, and cultural issues of the countries visited while traveling with like-minded individuals having a shared background.
