2009 Inaugural Journey

On May 23rd, 2009, Goucher College’s first team of Vagabonds, Shayna Flynn ’10, Saajid King ’10, and Aislyn Rose ’10 left their home on campus to connect with alumnae/i across the nation on a 3 week cross-country adventure. After being given a fond farewell from the Goucher Board of Trustees, they drove a decorative vagabond van across the U.S. to spread Goucher goodwill.
