Jayhawks to fly to Cuba

Posted on Jun 11, 2013 in Alumni News and News


If you’ve ever harbored a desire to visit Cuba, we have a great opportunity for you. Our alumni travel program, the Flying Jayhawks, features an exclusive package developed for the KU Alumni Association by our travel partner, Go Next, Inc.

Go Next, Inc. has been issued a People-to-People license by the U.S Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) that authorizes registered travelers of this educational exchange program to visit Cuba. The trip includes visits to Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Santa Clara, where travelers will meet with diverse locals including dancers, teachers and entrepreneurs.

This Cuban adventure will take place from Sept. 13-20, 2013, and is limited to around 25 participants. Only a few spots remain on the trip, so don’t miss this opportunity! You do not have to hold a degree from KU to be eligible to travel with the Jayhawks.

Danny Lewis, d’04, director of alumni programs, will host the trip.

If Cuba’s not your thing, we have a variety of other trips available that include both ocean and land journeys in exotic locations such as Africa, Asia, South America and Europe as well as historic tours of North America. Click here to view a list of all Flying Jayhawks programs.
