Honors College Annual Spring Trip

Each spring, The Honors College sponsors a trip exclusively for Honors students. Sign up on your own or bring a guest! Destinations switch between Milwaukee and Chicago (and may include other cities depending on events). This annual getaway allows Honors students for a small fee ($25 to $30) to enjoy a day away from campus and to sample 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.
