Join SCA this spring to enjoy food and conversation with fellow alumni and explore the cultural and architectural history of Lower Manhattan.
The natural history of New York is closely interwoven with the history of its native peoples. Join SCA for a VIP tour of the National Museum of the American Indian, located in the historic U.S. Custom House on Bowling Green, which celebrates the Native cultures of the Western Hemisphere — past, present, and future. Then explore Lower Manhattan on foot and end the afternoon with drinks at Fraunces Tavern.
Alums and friends are welcome to join for part or all of the afternoon. All ages are welcome for the tours; alums age 21+ are invited for drinks at Fraunces Tavern.
Thanks to SCA Board Member Carrie Gonzalez and the National Museum of the American Indian for providing this special opportunity for our alumni!
