What’s More Than A Vacation?

Our summer alumni college is called “More Than A Vacation” because it’s like a vacation…but it’s MORE! You’ll learn, laugh, explore, and find that a lifetime of learning is still not long enough. Each year we hear from alumni and faculty members who share about topics they’re passionate about. We visit sites in the region in and around Southwest Virginia. We talk about history, literature, current events, art, sports, nature, music, and more. In 2018 the event celebrated a 25th anniversary, and it was unforgettable!

Everyone needs a vacation…but we can give you more. Take a peek at last year’s schedule and get an idea of what happens. Then plan to join us for the next event!
