Alumni O-H-I-O Photos
Little likes his travel to be full of Buckeye spirit
Craig Little, '84 Physical Education, has one of the best jobs in the world.
As the director of alumni societies for The Ohio State University Alumni Association, one of his other duties as assigned, is to serve as a tour host where he gets to explore the world with his fellow Buckeyes through the Alumni Tours program. Little has been with the Association since 1996.
In January, he hosted the exotic Treasures of South America tour. During the 13-day trip, Little (second from right) shared his Buckeye pride with fellow alumni (from left to right) Blair Harrold, '71, Bruce Marhefka, '67, and his wife Ruth Marhefka. This photo was taken at a crossing of the Andes Mountains, at the border of Chile and Argentina.
While in South America, Little and his tour group also visited Argentina's capital city Buenos Aires, La Casa Rosada, the home of Argentina's president, and Iguazú Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. "Visiting July 9th Avenue in Buenos Aires was very exciting and a bit terrifying," Little said. "It's the widest avenue in the world and has about 25 lanes of traffic going in both directions."
One of the goals for the Alumni Tour program is to provide alumni with the opportunity to see the world and enjoy the camaraderie of being among other Buckeyes. "I encourage all EHE alumni to keep ties with Ohio State and to be a part of new experiences as a Buckeye," he said. "Our alumni are some of the most passionate in the world. It's wonderful to travel with people who really enjoyed their college experience."
Little is one of those alumni who learned a lot from his time on campus. "So many of the activities that I was involved in helped move me along in my career," Little said. He also thanks some of his favorite physical education professors for their dedication, including Andrew Taggert, Nancy Wardwell and Sally Dellinger.
"I can't wait for my next assignment," he said. "I'll be leaving in a few weeks for a 10-day Buckeye Alumni Tour cruise to Tahiti with 61 Buckeyes."
Now that's a great way to take a break from an especially cold Ohio winter.
