The iSchool road trip was my first real interaction with the iSchool. I had just joined this semester and did not know much about it. After experiencing the Road trip, I got closer to peers in my class, met extremely important people working in the industry I aspire to be in, and had a great time overall. My favorite part easily had to be the networking event. There were graduates who had just recently finished Syracuse and only been working for a year. I learned more about what it’s like to work in a IT position that one night, than any other event in my life. Not only that, I got a clear picture about the culture of every organization we went to. This was extremely vital to me because I applied to all those places and had no idea what the differences were between them! This trip allowed me to choose the corporation that had the best culture for me and informed me how to get a position. After I came back, I had told all my other classmates about it and we all plan on applying for the next road trip. I really have to say, for whoever is reading this, the people who made this trip happen did a phenomenal job. It’s not everyday you see someone who truly cares and dedicate so much time and effort in something as simple as a road trip. But their effort had surely proved itself worth it, because I would consider this road trip one of the highlights of my academic career so far. It set in stone my future with the iSchool and I’ve never been so glad to be apart of something. I just wanted to say thank you once again and hopefully, I’ll see you guys on the next one!
