Why should you join my trek?
This trek has literally everything – sandy beaches & snorkeling for beach bums, stargazing & volcanoes for the outdoorsy, intense hikes & extreme activities (cough-skydiving-cough) for Type As, Hawaiian history & culture for nerds, and enough mai tais and booze cruise partying to put you and your newest best friends in the Aloha spirit! Plus, you’ll be able to get a head start on preparing for interviews by having a ready-to-go story about that time you took a risk by jumping off the cliff from that scene in Forgetting Sarah Marshall!

Oh, and did I mention this is the FIRST TIME IN MTREK HISTORY that we’re leading a trek to the Hawaiian islands?!?! Join this trek if you want to have a Hawaiian good time, make new friends and make history at the same time!

Why should you join my trek?
Enjoy an adventure with cool people mixing together fun activities, cultural events and history, as well as a bit of partying! The perfect way to stay domestic yet still explore something totally new. A nice way to kick off the year, get to know life-long friends and have hilarious memories before you begin your MBA journey! And a nice reminder of warmer time before commiting yourself to the Michigan Winter.
