I am on the Mar 20 trip, coming from Saint Louis. This is my first RS adventure. Any others out there on this trip?

David Wice Jan 06, 2016 at 03:46 PM

Betsy & David Wice of Philadelphia are enrolled in the February 28 program - arriving N.O late Thursday, 2/25. Would like to hear from fellow Scholars.

I think you are going to love this program. I sure did. I want to go back ASAP. The people are great, the food is great, the sights are great. This was one of my top 3 programs out of 33 that i've been on.

Lockwood Rianhard Dec 05, 2015 at 01:13 PM

Mary & I are enrolled for the 17 Jan trip. Would like to contact anyone from Florida also going on 17 Jan.
Richard Klink Dec 05, 2015 at 01:42 PM

I went on this program last March. It is one of the best I have ever been on. Can't wait to go back.

I thought I had read somewhere about suggested dress code and now I can't find it. How dressed up did people get for the dinners?
Richard Klink Dec 05, 2015 at 01:45 PM

RS programs are very casual, no dress code. The women usually dress a little better than the men but don't worry about it. The only fancy place we ate at was Commander's Palace, they required that the men take off their hats.

I am going on the March 29th trip. I am from Maryland.

Richard Klink Mar 29, 2015 at 01:40 PM

I've gone on 30 RS programs. This is one of the best.

My friend Eileen and I are also going on the March 29th trip. This will be my first RS trip and her 2nd. We are coming from New York and are looking forward to it. Bonnie

I just returned from NO on the 13th. Had a wonderful time. The lecturers are excellent and the food is great. I'm sure you will have a wonderful time..

A friend and I are going on the March 29th trip. We are arriving from Denver about 1:00.
Richard Klink Mar 13, 2015 at 09:32 PM

I just returned from New Orleans. Great program. I think you will enjoy it a lot.

What things did you enjoy that weren't a part of the organized trip? How much free time is there?
Richard Klink Mar 16, 2015 at 06:54 PM

I enjoyed walking around the town and down by the river. If you want to go on the steam boat, make a reservation early. You will have a lunch and a dinner on your own. There is not very much free time but enough to see some extra stuff. The hotel is well located to walk to a lot of interesting venues.

I'm going on the March 29 program....who else is?
Premium Email Subscriber Mar 15, 2015 at 06:04 PM

My friend, Debbie and I are enrolled in this program! We are from Colorado - our first RS trip!
