Are you STUCK debating which MTrek is the best? Don’t be like the Ever Given and get stuck in a canal, we’ll help solve all the supply chain issues for you by directing you straight through the Panama Canal and into the best MTrek on record. Our trip to Panama will be exactly the trip you’ve always dreamed of connecting the Atlantic and Pacific to bring together the best Ross has to offer. Throughout our 5 days in Panama, we promise there will be no “papers” due, but we can’t say there won’t be a chance some of us pull an all-nighter if you so desire. We plan on taking in the natural beauty of Panama (did someone say boat trip?), exploring heritage sites, and soaking in the sun to prepare for Michigan winter. We are a team of “seasoned professionals” (aka third year dual degrees so… we’ve seen some things yall) who will help ensure your bucket list is checked – good food, good views, and good vibes are 100% guaranteed. Join us for PanaMANIA and a truly unforgettable MTrek experience. Water you waiting for?! This is not a trip you’ll want to pass up on.

Why should you join my trek?Outside of its accessibility (it is 2.5 hours from Miami and its currency is US dollars), there is: a rich history and unreal levels of biodiversity to learn about; incredible beaches, mountains, and islands to explore; an incredible blend of culture that can be experienced through its unique food, amazing temperate weather, a 7th wonder of the world (Panama Canal), and exceptional night life. This is going to be an awesome mix of learning, exploring, and turning up 😉
