JMC Alumni Study Abroad in Florence Italy June 2013


Join James Madison College in Florence, Italy for an

Alumni Study Abroad and Travel Program

June 9-16, 2013

Rome Extension, June 16-19, 2013




Register soon as space is almost full!

This alumni travel program will coincide with Madison's student study abroad program in Florence, with classes taught by Madison professors.  The trip will be managed by the experienced MSU Alumni Association travel program, Classic Travels of Okemos, MI, and Alumni Relations at JMC.  Dean Sherman Garnett, and Professors Eric Petrie and Tobin Craig will lead the classroom activities.  We will have two morning classroom sessions with students and faculty, discussing significant readings, such as the contrast between ancient and modern republicanism.  Readings will be announced prior to travel in plenty of time for preparation.  Guided tours and day trips (that may join together alumni, students, and faculty) are included in the package, as well as a banquet for the whole group (including students and faculty).  The 3-star hotel Palazzo Guadagni in Florence has been booked for just our group and is located in a noble historic palace from the 1500s in the Santo Spirito neighborhood, which is one of the most charming areas in the Florentine historic center, as well as within easy walking distance to the classroom location.  The trip will be limited to 20-30 individuals, so early sign up is recommended.  If the spaces are not filled by Madison alumni, the trip will be opened up to other MSU alumni. A Rome side trip is also available for our group.   Click here for more information and to register.  Contact Kim Allan with questions.
