“I had the opportunity to travel with fellow colleagues to the Midwest to visit different college campuses and their Student Unions. I enjoyed having the opportunity to go out of California and visit a different environment than what I was used to. I also enjoyed being around like-minded individuals that had similar goals as I do. ”
