Continuing Education is leading lucky Packer fans to Brett Favre’s Enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

We have reserved thirty of the much sought after Enshrinement packages which include the Enshrinement ceremony, the Hall of Fame game between the Packers and the Colts, and a Tim McGraw concert.

Brett Favre’s enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame has created an unprecedented rush on tickets; therefore, tickets for Saturday’s Enshrinement and Sunday’s Hall of Fame game sold out within hours. Continuing Education is very fortunate to have thirty packages for our community. For you!

In addition to the ceremony, game and concert, the Enshrinement package includes admission to the Hall of Fame museum, special university programming at the museum, a tailgate party before the game, a pre-concert party, dinner for the ceremony, Coach USA transportation, three nights lodging, and all transportation in Canton.

According to the Isle Royale National Park, "The park was designated part of the National Wilderness Preservation System in 1976, under the Wilderness Act, and remains today as an example of primitive America. In fact, over 99% of the land in Isle Royale is designated wilderness."

A hiker, photographer, or nature lover's dream, the Isle is the perfect backdrop for those adventure seekers! According to the Isle Royale National Park, "The Park is composed of many parallel ridges resulting from ancient lava flows which were tilted and glaciated. There are historic lighthouses and shipwrecks, ancient copper mining sites, and plenty of spots to observe moose, wolves, loons, beaver, fox, and other small mammals and birdlife." 

Accessible only by foot, boat, or float plane, we've arranged the perfect opportunity for you to see nature at its finest. We've even arranged a lecture on the flora and fauna of Isle Royale! Take a look at the itineraryand you will be amazed at what this educational trip has to offer!
