As travel options increase and the time and expense to reach Mussoorie decrease, more and more Woodstock alumni are making pilgrimages to visit their old home and school in the hills.
Since January 2006, the alumni guest book in the Development Office has listed 105 visiting alumni-almost one visiting alumna/us every two days! Many other visitors are hosted by the Alumni/Development Office, but 83 who pre-planned their visits were given special alumni treatment-a tour of the school, the opportunity to meet familiar staff and alumni on staff, a meal in the faculty cafeteria, and the opportunity to attend any school events in progress during their visit. If you are planning a visit to Woodstock, please contact the alumni office in advance. We would love to make plans for your visit and assist with arranging accommodation and travel in the vicinity.
