Provence - October 18-26, 2016
Alumni and friends joined us for this magical trip and met up with two Muhlenberg professors, Drs. Paul and Eileen McEwan, for an insider's perspective. Provence is where sundrenched beaches and undulating hills tie the Mediterranean to the Alps. Its very name conjures images of idyllic days with dazzling light illuminating the verdant countryside’s sloping vineyards and lush olive groves. The colorful scenery of the region enraptured Cézanne, Chagall and van Gogh. Writers have flocked here and extolled it as the Great Land of Inspiration for all that is French and fabulous.

In the Footsteps of Luther - May 23-June 3, 2017 The 500th Anniversary of the Reformation
Five hundred years ago, a German monk turned Europe's Christian community upside down when he questioned the role of indulgences in the Roman Catholic Church. When Martin Luther revealed his 95 Theses on October 31, 1517, so began the Protestant Reformation. Even though popular belief is that Luther dramatically nailed his work to the door of the Schlosskirche in Wittenberg, historians say that the religious revolutionary spread his work with the help of a new revolutionary device, the printing press. Learn about Martin Luther's life, walk in his footsteps and discover his world on this exceptional educational program through his historic region of Germany. Your journey begins with three nights in the vibrant city of Berlin and concludes with two nights in the beautiful city of Prague.
