Alumni Association

Welcome to the Rustic Pathways Alumni Association! Traveling with us was just the beginning. As a Rustic Alum, you have unique experiences that will forever impact how you view and interact with the world. The time that you spent with us has given you a permanent place in our global family. If you’ve traveled with us previously and currently do not receive our Alumni Newsletter, sign up below to stay in touch and get access to exclusive internship opportunities and alumni-only events.

Where Are Rustic Alumni Now?

Rustic Pathways Alumni are known for being hard-working, dedicated, and solution-oriented. We reconnected with our global family to hear how their #sorustic experience helped carry forth these and other traits beyond traveling with us!


Alumni Opportunities

Current and former students who want to continue to have an impact and have a say in how we spread the word about Rustic can apply to be ambassadors for the Rustic Pathways brand or our Foundation projects. Read on to learn about our different alumni opportunities!

Join the Rustic Squad

This is more than a brand ambassador program. It’s for the students who live and breathe Rustic. Squad members receive cool swag when they’re accepted and join an amazing community of super engaged, go-getter, like-minded students. It is our expectation that Squad members stay active in the Facebook group, participate in focus groups, attend public speaking opportunities and local events, take advantage of mentorship with regional staff, and build a deeper connection with the larger Rustic community. Squad members are positive change-makers who act as a voice for Rustic Pathways in their community. If you have any questions, reach out to Rachel at

Share Your #SoRustic Photos
