Registration will open in July and we will post a link to register on this page. Please do not make travel or flight arrangements until you successfully complete your registration. We would not want anyone to incur additional expenses by having to change a flight or other travel arrangement. Note that this tour may involve two different airports (arrival to Seattle, departure from Portland) and you will need to make reservations at two different hotels. Specific hotel info will be sent to registrants directly.

Tour content is subject to change.


Arrive in Seattle on Sunday, September 8, for a Monday morning tour departure. Materials will be distributed on Sunday.

NOTE: This tour is a five-day tour and must be completed in its entirety. Tour participants should plan to fly into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Sunday. Try to arrive at the hotel by 6:00 p.m. for a gathering or dinner. On Friday, please note that the bus will not return to the tour hotel in Portland after the last campus visit at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, but will depart directly for Portland International Airport.
