Trip Highlights


Alumni Relations and JWU Global joined forces to create Alumni Abroad programs, which provide alumni with opportunities to travel in a group while utilizing JWU's relationships with our study abroad partners. The inaugural trip took place in late February 2020 to Hoedspruit, South Africa for an ecology and safari tour, and now we are offering a fantastic opportunity to travel to Italy where you will spend nine days exploring Italy's beauty and delectable cuisine in Rome and Florence with our in-country partner, Florence University of the Arts - American University of Florence (FUA).
