Why should you join my trek?
This trek will have you feeling well-balanced, well-accomplished, and well-suited to start your time as an MBA! I bring to this trip some past experience traveling to Vegas (although my gambling tips are restricted to only having seen “21” and “Ocean’s Eleven”), traveling to the Grand Canyon (I didn’t fall off the edge so that is a win!), and flexing my plethora of random beer knowledge. You will also get to witness the power of section bonding by joining this trek with 3 of my section mates from Ross Section 3!
