Proposing a Trip

Trip ideas are submitted by Covenant faculty in late January to early February, approximately one year prior to their proposed January travel dates. Approved trips are announced later in that semester. If you are interested in leading a trip, please contact

Applying to Travel

Because of the advanced planning required for quality travel, students are asked to commit earlier to trips than to classes or internships. A general trip application is sent to all current sophomores and juniors when proposed trips are approved. At that time, leaders of approved J-term trips will share information and raise interest in their trips both electronically and in person.
