International Travel

Beginning with the men's soccer team's trip to Scotland in 1997, international travel has become a hallmark of the University of Chicago Athletics experience. UChicago intercollegiate teams have traveled to 22 countries on four continents as of spring 2017.

Team fundraising efforts as well as support from Athletics & Recreation and alumni - including the Edith Ballwebber Fund, an endowed fund for female athletes - have made the trips possible.
