Park University Alumni Association PRESORTED 8700 NW River Park Dr. STANDARD Parkville, MO 64152-3795 U.S. POSTAGE PAID Dear Alumni, Imagine yourself walking the streets of two great European capitals, taking in the historic sights and sounds of each distinct city. See yourself in the City of Light where Toulouse-Lautrec and Claude Monet painted, where a stunning palace once home to royalty is now home to royal art. Picture yourself looking up at gargoyles as they stare down from the lofty ledges of legendary Notre-Dame, or in a chic boutique or sidewalk café, the Eiffel Tower in full view. Experience train travel at its finest as you cross the Channel on the Eurostar and find yourself in front of Buckingham Palace or at a local pub enjoying fish and chips. Imagine yourself in the Tower of London, whose ancient battlements tell intriguing tales of kings, queens and traitors, or in Stratford-upon-Avon, where Shakespeare lived, wrote and wooed his beloved Anne Hathaway. Picture the weathered stone walls of Oxford’s colleges as you stroll the narrow streets of this famed university town. So many dreams come true in two of the world’s most fabulous cities.
