For the first time in 20 years, alumni, friends, and faculty have the opportunity to explore the world’s architecture, music, politics, literature, art, nature, and food with Campbell University through the Office of Alumni Engagement’s Campbell Passport program.
In December of 2017 the program launched, taking along members of the Campbell community to Germany for the “Martin Luther and the Reformation Christmas Tour.” The trip abroad included visits to sites important to the Reformation & Martin Luther: Frankfurt, Eisenach, Leipzig, and Berlin. Read President J. Bradley Creed’s account of the trip in this Campbell Magazine article.
Campbell alumnus, Guilford Bass, Sr. (’70) was one of the travelers on this opening Campbell Passport adventure. Bass is a seasoned traveler but he says that this trip was something special.
“I’ve traveled during my lifetime and having the opportunity to be with people you know and organizations that you love – that’s special. Being with Campbell made the trip better than if we had gone on our own. The Office of Alumni Engagement was great, too!”
Why should you choose to take advantage of this travel program? Bass has a couple of reasons from his own personal, travel experience.
“I knew just about everyone in the party from Campbell. The ability to fellowship and strengthen friendships while abroad was one of the greatest things. I graduated from Campbell and it’s always been a part of my life. Campbell is special to me and if I get the opportunity to continue that relationship with the University, I take it. It’s always been a great experience.”
Our next adventure will include a trip New England with stops in Portland, Plymouth, Martha’s Vineyard and Boston October 8 – 13, 2018. In May of 2019, we’ll travel to Scotland to celebrate the University’s Scottish roots. Travel with President J. Bradley Creed to Brazil during the Presidential Tour: Brazil and the Baptist World in July of 2020 or join him for the Presidential Tour: Oberammergau, Germany’s “Passion Play” on September 30 through October 8, 2020.
