Student Bus Trips

The Student Alumni Association is delighted to make arrangements for a deluxe motor coach to bring your student home for university-scheduled breaks. The cost is $145 for Chicago and $115 for the Twin Cities, and each is based on round-trip fares only. Seating is limited, and we operate on a first-come, first-served basis.

We are proud to partner with Arrow Stage Lines to offer your student a safe, convenient and comfortable ride home. Arrow buses provide restrooms, TV/DVD and comfortable seating while ensuring students' easy and safe travel to and from campus.

The winter break schedule is as follows:
