UHP Annual Spring Trip
Each Spring, the UHP sponsors a trip exclusively for Honors students and their guests. Destinations switch between Milwaukee and Chicago (and may include other cities depending on events). This annual venture allows Honors students for a small fee ($25 to $30) to enjoy a day away from campus and to experience an array of exciting cultural opportunities.
Spring Trip itineraries typically include a trip to a museum or gallery, admission to a live theatrical or music production, and a three-course dinner.
Plans are underway for our trip to Milwaukee on Saturday, April 25. Details are HERE and were also sent to UHP members by post and by email. We hope you can join us!
Details about the Spring Trip 2014 to Chicago on Saturday, May 3, are posted in the February newsletter!
