OBU Alumni Travel Program

The Traveling Bison program is an opportunity for OBU Alumni and Friends to roam the globe and learn together! We are partnering with trusted tour operators who understand alumni travel and offer exciting itineraries both here in the USA and abroad. Our tours are designed to promote educational and cultural experiences and when you travel with our program, a portion of your tour price will come right back to the OBU Alumni Association! Our tours are open to anyone, so invite your friends and family to come along too!
