Bill Hendrickson and Steve Gentile
When Bill Hendrickson (B.A. ’70) and Steve Gentile travel, it’s usually with another couple. But when they learned about the Alumni Travel Program’s trip to Cuba in 2013, they jumped at the rare opportunity. “Not only is it the only way we knew of to get there,” Hendrickson says, “but the group travel arrangements facilitated a kind of people-topeople learning approach that we really appreciated. Everywhere we went, we had direct contact with Cubans. We could ask them questions and they could ask us.” This personal,human contact is what made the group travel experience special. Hendrickson and Gentile are booked on an alumni travel trip in Eastern Europe this summer.
