Every year, the UNT Alumni Association offers alumni an opportunity to travel to far-away destinations where they can learn about new cultures and meet people from around the world. Next, the association is planning a Baltic Treasures cruise aboard Oceania Cruises’ Nautica June 8-19 along the Baltic Sea to visit cities and landmarks in Denmark, Poland, Sweden and Russia.
In June, Edward Supina (’64, ’66 M.Ed.) and his wife, Ann, who attended North Texas from 1964 to 1966, took advantage of the association’s 11-day Alaskan Frontiers and Glaciers cruise, enjoying guest lectures and scenic travels from Vancouver to Alaska. The cruise also included alumni groups from other universities.
“The crew and ship were top of the line,” Ann says. “The educational component made us want to sightsee. This was our first cruise and we ended up taking a lot of excursions.”
Ann and her husband said the highlight of their trip was meeting alumni from different universities. The Supinas also were delighted with the information they received from author and lecturer Terry Green, who spoke about the history of their destinations, native cultures and what to look for on their excursions off the ship.
