Arthur Frommer on CAU

Arthur Frommer

Arthur Frommer, founder of the Frommer's travel guides, attended CAU's summer program and described it as

"Exhilarating . . ."

"An eye-opening experience . . ."

and "Among competing vacations, this was one of the great values."

Later, on his radio program, The Travel Show, Frommer said, "If you have never been on a learning vacation you really owe it to yourself to try one next summer. Many people regard vacations of that sort as the most memorable in all the world of travel . . . I am already thinking of going back to Cornell for a week in the summer."

Frommer described his CAU experiences in more detail in the following pieces:
