As a freshman, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect on my first ever iSchool road trip. Being an ambitious person that likes to take advantage of opportunities, I knew I wanted to apply. I was excited when I got accepted to go on the road trip. Now that is actually happened, it even surpassed my expectations.
If I had to describe this trip in one word, I would choose the word “amazing.” I absolutely loved spending 2 days in New York City, because it is one of my favorite places. I thought it was a very well organized trip, and I give credit to everyone that made it possible. Personally, it is my dream to work in New York City, so it was super cool to see recent SU alumni already living that dream. It was also awesome meeting so many executives, rather than just recruiters from the companies. For example, having the opportunity to hear from Edwina Fitzmaurice at Ernst & Young was incredible. This trip broadened my mind as to what field I would like to go in. Personally, I found cybersecurity very interesting. My favorite visit would have to be Bank of America. Not only because of the great view, but because the whole vibe seemed great. The speakers absolutely loved their jobs, which is important. I would definitely recommend road trips to all iSchool students, and I am looking forward to going on many more.
