London & Paris Preview


On October 10th the third Stonehill College Alumni Travel Program will depart for a "Literary Tour of London & Paris".

Academic Vice President and Provost Katie Conboy will serve as faculty guide and join the group of alumni and friends as they tour historic and literary sites in both cities and surrounding areas.

Some highlights include a guided tour at the Charles Dickens House Museum and a makeup and costume demonstration at the Globe Theatre. Group members will take excursions to Versailles, Stonehenge, Windsor, Giverny, Cantebury and more.

While in London, the gorup will be joined at dinner by current Stonehill students who are studying or interning in England for the semester as well as some recent graduates who have relocated to London. Some travelers have already planned to attend an evening or two at the theatre.

The trip will conclude in Paris and our final evening will feature a special farewell dinner and a cruise along the Seine.

Watch for updates on the online travel journal as the Alumni Travel Program visits London & Paris.

Our special guests were from the University of Granada's GRIIS Program - the one Stonehill has a partnership with for our students to spend a semester.  Amalia and Teresa work for GRIIS and they coordinated a lovely walk down the Avenido de Constitucion with Jessica '14 and Elyse '14 as well as Sara '12 (who has returned to Granada for a year after graduation to get post-graduate work done).  All five of them were welcoming and informative.  We saw some of the university and heard some history of the city, and some current facts as well:  300,000 people live in the city but 100,000 are students!!  This was apparent as the whole city has a college-town feel to it.
