Essential Europe

The International Experience

Next to a good education, one of the best investments in your future is a trip to Europe.

Before settling into that new job or graduate school, celebrate your college successes with an unforgettable voyage through nine wondrous countries. Capture the flavor of the cities and the beauty of the countryside, climb the Eiffel Tower then bask under the Grecian sun, sample the delicacies and specialties of Germany, England, and Italy - Europe, in all its splendor awaits. See the greatest monuments and discover the tiny corners of Europe together with fellow grads - let this be your year for adventure.
