Since the first Study Tour to Glasgow, Scotland in 1991, the Alumni Association has been running Study Tours biannually to cities with rich architectural histories all over the world.
John Martine, board member, past president and practicing architect, runs the tours with the help of local architects and architectural historians. Alumni are often so grateful for their experiences that they eagerly volunteer to show off their cities and provide access to public and private buildings not generally available to tourists - as well as to some of the best restaurants.
