Exciting Swiss Winter Escapade
Offered to Samford Alumni, Friends

The Samford Alumni Association will sponsor an eight-day Winter Escapade to Switzerland and the charming village of Interlaken Jan. 21-28, 2002. Headquarters for this exciting getaway will be the five-star Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa, one of Europeís finest.

Switzerland is a land of grandeur and beauty that combines awesome peaks, deep forests and clear streams with a treasure chest of architecture spanning 20 centuries. It is also a shopper's paradise and home to Grindelwald, one of the world's paramount ski resorts, which skiers in the Samford group may visit.

Skiers and non-skiers alike will find plenty to enjoy on this fun-filled excursion. Zurich, Berne, the cheese region of Gruyeres, Lucerne and the pristine alpine resort of Zermatt, at the foot of the Matterhorn, are all close enough to visit via Switzerland's famed railway system or excursion coach.

Samford alumni and friends will travel to Zurich from Atlanta and return via scheduled trans-Atlantic service such as Swissair, Lufthansa or similar carrier. They will enjoy Swiss buffet breakfast daily and unlimited use of the hotel pool, indoor tennis and golf facilities, sauna, billiards and fitness center.

The special Samford Alumni Association price is $1,595 per person from Atlanta, based on double occupancy. Some single accommodations are available for an additional $350. Reservations are to be paid in full by November 7, 2001.
