Who’s Going?

The Billiken Travel program is open to all SLU graduates, though you do not have to be a SLU grad to travel with the program – friends and family are welcome.

Trips designed especially for families are offered occasionally, but most are best suited for adults, especially those on small expedition vessels or with long side trips that include lectures.

Those with disabilities are accommodated as much as possible, but not all destinations offer offer the same level of access. For this reason, we recommend that you call the tour operator prior to registering for a trip to inquire about the physical access provided and to obtain information about the trips best suited to any physical limitations that you may have.

Our Travel Partners

We realize our selected dates may not work for you, nor can we offer every program. But if you travel on your own with one of our travel partners, you can still support SLU. Just tell our partners when you make your reservation that you want the credit to go to Saint Louis University Alumni Association.

Alumni Holidays (AHI)

Each experience reflects the high standards our travelers have come to expect, and our itineraries connect you to the people and cultures of the places you will visit.
