Are you like us and thought that the only Saint Tropez you’d ever see was the label on your self-tanner bottle? THINK AGAIN. That’s right, future Trekkies, Ross does the ~South of France.~ Come lounge with us by the Mediterranean Sea where we’ll be seeing the sights, hitting local bars & clubs, exploring the local gastronomy (read: wine), and relaxing in the sun! Our goal on this trip is to see as much and do as much as we can while still getting lots of time to relax before the semester begins. It would be so NICE if you’d join us! (get it?)

But for real, I’m so excited to get to know each and every one of you and to ease your transition into Ross in arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world!
