Travel Program Update


We've Never Been to Southeast Asia

(But We've Been to Ashland)

The travel program combines the old with the new this year, with the ever-popular trip to see the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Ore., coupled with the university’s first trip to Southeast Asia. These two are still open to all Willamette alumni and friends, but they’ll fill up.

Angkor Wat and the Mekong

Oct. 30 – Nov. 15, 2012

Almost half of the Angkor Wat and the Mekong trip will take place along the great Mekong River. Among many other things, you’ll see deep jungles and the Mekong Delta, stay in Bangkok and experience the famous Buddhist temple complex, Angkor Wat.

The epic trip package includes no fewer than 27 sightseeing tours, 37 paid-for meals and roundtrip international airfare from the West Coast.

Shakespeare Festival

Oregon Shakespeare Festival

June 14 –17, 2012

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland is your chance to be play-reviewer par excellence (you know you want to) alongside Pat Alley ’73, our perennial expert leader. This is the year’s easy, leave-the-driving-and-logistics-to-us trip.

Over three days, you’ll see six outstanding plays; excellent seats are reserved for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Henry V and Troilus and Cressida, as well as Chekhov’s Seagull, the world premier of The White Snake, and the manic farce Animal Crackers.
