Correction: Dates for GUAA Tours
In the December 2015 issue of the alumni e-newsletter, the dates for the GUAA Tours were misquoted as taking place in 2015 when both tours (New England Fall Foliage and Pacific Northwest) will take place in October 2016 and June 2017, respectively. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. Please see the link for more information on the tours.
