Start Planning Now! LEADNY Alumni Study Trip planned for 2020
Aug 25, 2017
We had a wonderful inaugural alumni study tour to Ireland and Scotland this past July. Based on that success, we tried to host another tour to Costa Rica this past January, but the notice was just too short for many people to change their winter plans, and we had to cancel the offering. We are not discouraged, though, and plan to host another alumni study tour in January or February of 2020. Don’t worry, it will be someplace warm! Start making plans now to allow yourself to join us for what is sure to be another great alumni offering!
