Let’s Go

The pandemic taught us so many things and one is to seize the day. And study travel has always been open to the public, so grab your friends, neighbors, book club members, dog walker, or whoever is important to you (or is fun!), and join us on an educational adventure. We’ve got so many journeys ready for you and many more in the planning stages. Use the links to the right to get a sense of study travel.

Spotlight on: Antarctica

Antarctica is remote, independent, captivating. People often visit for the wildlife but fall in love with the ice: an entire museum of colossal and magical ice forms defying description. And we’ll have our very own ice experts along: Bob Jacobel, Professor Emeritus of Physics, a researcher so acclaimed he has a glacier named for him based on the recommendation of the United States Geological Survey, and his daughter Allison Jacobel, a paleoclimatologist and Assistant Professor of Earth and Climate Sciences at Middlebury College.
