The Alumni Activities Club was thrilled to have their first out-of-town trip in at least fifteen months. The participating College Experience alumni and staff, all of whom have all been vaccinated, made their destination a worthy one for this special occasion – The Walkway Over the Hudson @walkwayoverthehudson.

Staff drove Mia, David, and Rob to Poughkeepsie, N.Y. to trek across the walking path known to be the “World’s Longest Elevated Pedestrian Bridge.” When they arrived, they were greeted by 2019 graduate Rachael and Mia’s mother Sue, who lives nearby. Together they travelled across the steel cantilever bridge across the Hudson River from Poughkeepsie to Highland, N.Y. and back, a distance of over 2.5 miles.

Following that adventure, they went to Lolita’s, a nearby restaurant for pizza to celebrate their much awaited trip. They felt as though they were opening a present that had been waiting patiently for them, which was long past due.

The alumni are planning a more excursions throughout the summer. We look forward to seeing our region and beyond through their eyes.
