Rooming Options-
Some of you have already requested additional nights in Paris. If you have not done so already and wish to arrive early (prior to May 23) please let us know this week. The rate per night will be no more than $186; however, Lexie may be able to arrange a lower group rate once we know the number of rooms we require.

The hotels we will be staying in are true to European standards and only offer two configurations, one double bed or two twins. Married couple will be placed in double rooms. Please let us know if you would like the alternate configuration.

Flight Reminder- We recommend you book your flight with United, American or Air Tahiti Nui. Once you book your flight please send us your flight details.

Bonjour France Bulldog Travelers –

We will be getting much more information to you in January about our upcoming trip to France but I know several of you are starting to look at flights and had some questions. So here’s some information to get you started in case you’re airfare shopping over the holidays.

Recommendations from our host travel agent:
- Fly into Charles de Gaulle airport (more information about ground transportation to the hotel to follow)
- Travel to arrive by morning on Tuesday, May 23rd 
- Fly on United, American or Air Tahiti Nui – Air France and their code share partner, Delta, are not recommended because of the very busy terminal they arrive into.
- Return flights from Charles de Gaulle should depart on Friday, June 2nd 
- If you wish to book additional nights at our hotels in Paris on either the front or back end of the trip, please let us know and we will reserve the rooms for you.

Please note that the Office of Alumni & Community Relations will be closed for the holiday break beginning at 12 p.m. on Friday, December 23 and will reopen January 3rd. However, this inbox will be monitored if you have any questions.

Holiday blessings to each of you and your families.

Och Tamale!
