NWOSU Foundation Release

January 11, 2010

The deadline to register for the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Alumni Association’s Alaskan cruise is approaching on Jan. 29.

Lizabeth Richey, alumni director, is leading the eight-day tour June 18 through June 25, which includes Alaskan port stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Icy Straight Point/Glacier Bay National Park. The cruise offers the opportunity for land excursions each time the ship ports, where travelers may view wildlife and glaciers, enjoy shopping, and experience local cultures and outdoor adventures.

“Traveling with a group is a lot of fun,” Richey said. “It gives you the opportunity to develop relationships and get to know people better.”

In recent years, the Alumni Association has traveled to Rome, Peru and Ireland through Pilgrim Tours, the travel company for the upcoming cruise.

The cost ranges from $2,369 to $5,549 depending on room selection on the Radiance of the Seas ship. The trip price includes round-trip airfare from Oklahoma City, lodging and nearly all meals. A $300 deposit is due Jan. 29, and the deadline for final payments is April 2.
